    People with Ubuntu questions...I don't get it. Ubuntu has the largest support forum for a Linux distro that I have ever seen. Go there and ask questions about Ubuntu!

    Go to the Gnome menu, top left, the first one, go to the bottom to "Add/Remove Software"

    Pick Nvidia Graphics Drivers or something similar, then Install/Add/Check it, hit apply or something and it'll do it all for you :D Apologies for not knowing the exact method, it's been a while since i did it, and you only need to do it once...
