Looks ok. You use the nvidia module as you should. No need to edit.

It's already been done (the change from nv to nvidia).

If it cannot load or initialize the nvidia module, I think it says
something akin to "Could not initialize/load nvidia module".

OK, do "modprobe nvidia" + "echo nvidia >>/etc/modules" (the latter will
make sure the nvidia module is automatically loaded upon reboots). This
should be all you need to do, since your xorg.conf looks ok.
