Do we need to decide what the official (or preferred) CentOS Way is for 
this? Or do we just present all the options without prejudice?

There are (to my knowledge) the Nvidia binary installer, dkms driver 
from rpmforge, kmdl package from ATrpms, and a kmod driver from elrepo.

I should probably declare a conflict of interests so I'll just ask the 
question rather than providing opinion towards the answer :)
