Try these lines in your sources.list.

## Nvidia drivers for unstable
deb http://people.debian.org/~rdonald/nvidia unstable 
nvidia-graphics-drivers
deb http://people.debian.org/~rdonald/nvidia unstable nvidia-xconfig
deb http://people.debian.org/~rdonald/nvidia unstable nvidia-settings
deb http://people.debian.org/~rdonald/nvidia unstable 
nvidia-kernel-common


I believe they will work with stable instead of unstable in the lines as 
well if you run that. You probably going to need to use =1.0-8178-1 on 
the end of the package name to tell it which specific driver/source 
packages to install.
