Slow down! Try and stay as stock as possable, because you can be in for
a lot of trouble if you do not.
1) Start with the restricted drivers in the standard repository. That
should work for a 5700.
2) If not, the next step is a more current repository. I use the xswat
ppa for my GTX550 Ti.
3) The compiled drivers directly from Nvidia. I never recomend this,
and have never seen anyone actually need it.
That all said, Unity is brand new and WILL have issues. If you can not
get steps 1 or 2 to work, try going back to the LTS, 10.04 since it
still uses the very stable Gnome 2. I am still on it for almost all of
my systems. I am also not a Unity fan. :)
