Which driver for Nvidia card on jessie

After a hardware change my workstation with X11/XFCE has a new Nvidia
graphics card and the nouveau driver doesn't seem to work with new
card.  Before the hardware change I used xserver-xorg-video-nouveau.

The new Nvidia card is listed by lspci as

02:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation Device 1430 (rev a1) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
        Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Device 1190

        Memory at f0000000 (64-bit, prefetchable) [size=32M]
        I/O ports at 1000 [size=128]
        Expansion ROM at f3080000 [disabled] [size=512K]

        Capabilities: [600] Vendor Specific Information: ID=0001 Rev=1 Len=024 <?>
        Capabilities: [900] #19

I haven't found much info on which driver to use with this card.  Is
the nouveau driver able to work with it?  Or do I have to use the
Nvidia binary only driver?
