Unless my Xorg.conf is wrong, I am definitely using the nvidia driver.  I
have included the entirety of my xorg.conf below.  I basically used the
default xorg.conf and it gives me 1280x720, which works OK for my needs.

I am using Qt as my menu renderer.  I suppose I could try OpenGL and see if
that works better for me.
