This is the thread about my attempts (and I have the same card as yours).
You can add this line:
deb http://people.debian.org/~rdonald/nvidia unstable/amd64/
in your "/etc/apt/sources.list" file and you'll get the possibility
to download the tarball of the 7676 version, from which you can then
make the installable module (as explained in the above thread).
Nevertheless, I still have that problem about having to plug a TV
cable (although I'm not using the TV-out) because otherwise, the
digital output does not send the video signal to the monitor upon
X server startup.
If you find a solution, I'd be happy to hear about it.
