Right now, I have the NVIDIA proprietary drivers enabled without the Ubuntu-X repo, so the driver version is 295.40 (which is on the official Ubuntu repo) instead of the current 304.64 for my card, but I want to update to the current (using the Ubuntu-X repo).

If I update to the new version, what will happen to my TwinView settings? Will there be any extra work to do to migrate to the new driver?

If it helps any, here's my Xorg.conf:
