I may be repeating a few things here...
In the "Device" section of your active "ServerLayout" in /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 
you need:
    Driver      "nvidia"

In the "Module" section you need (at least):
	Load    "glx"

If they exist, these two lines should be commented out:
#   Load    "GLcore"
#   Load    "dri"

And you did install both the NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-nnnn package as well as the 
NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-nnnn package?
