I echo this recommendation.

I used to use the NVIDIA drivers directly from the nvidia.com, but since
I upgraded my workstation to CentOS-6.x I have been using elrepo's rpms
for nvidia with no issues.

I certainly know how to build things (being that I build most of the c4
and c5 updates that we release), but I love the convenience that elrepo
provides.  I highly recommend the elrepo site for anything that they
currently maintain, they do a great job.
