Nvidia Videocards:
Run in terminal as root:
$ apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-$(uname -r) nvidia-kernel-dkms nvidia-glx nvidia-settings nvidia-xconfig

If you got a new nvidiacard or if you want the most recent driver run this (Remember the Backports lines in /etc/apt/source.list):
$ apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-$(uname -r)
$ apt-get -t wheezy-backports install nvidia-kernel-dkms nvidia-glx nvidia-settings nvidia-xconfig

Run in terminal as root:
$ nvidia-xconfig

Restart the computer

Problems with hdmi sound:
I had some trouble getting hdmi sound working, which I solved this way:

Run "$ aplay -l" and check the number of "hda-nvidia".

Create /etc/modprobe.d/sound.conf and write one of the following lines:
if card = 0 write : options snd-hda-intel probe_mask=0xfff2
if card = 1 write : options snd-hda-intel probe_mask=0xffff,0xfff2
if card = 2 write : options snd-hda-intel probe_mask=0xffff,0xffff,0xfff2
