Nvidia includes CUDA in all their recent drivers. If it isn't detecting CUDA then you have another problem. Try the RPC CUDA miner or Diablominer.

Yes, but you also need libraries only included in the CUDA Toolkit (e.g. cudart).

On Windows CUDA is included with the drivers... I don't have the CUDA toolkit installed and I can use rpcminer-cuda with no problems. Under Linux, the CUDA toolkit is indeed required.

You are going to get hooked and jealous of the the Radeon people before long ;-)  The NVidia cards compute a little differently and as a result get about 30-35% of the hash rate of an arguably equivalent Radeon card.  I sidelined my 5700GTX (overclocked) for a Radeon 6970 for mining purposes.  You will get the itch, wait and see :)
