I have an iMac 9,1

The graphic card is: GeForce GT 130 based on what I found here.

What Nvidia driver do I use in Ubuntu to support this card?

I am using Ubuntu 12.04

Whatever works best for you ;-) The choices are in the additional drivers tab in updates. –  Rinzwind Apr 5 at 19:10
    
Ok, just trying to understand how it works, but I discovered it is a GeForce 8800M GTS. I think I will be buying a real PC here soon. –  user12275 Apr 5 at 20:19

See nvidia.com/Download/driverResults.aspx/73221/en-us. Don't download the driver, but use the version nbr to choose the right propriety driver. –  chaskes Apr 9 at 0:26
    
Any ideas why the machine locks up even after using one of the drivers listed in restricted drivers? –  user12275 Apr 10 at 17:30
