On a couple of occasions, when working with very recent Nvidia graphics
cards,
I have had to download the list direct from the site which gathers this
information:
http://pciids.sourceforge.net/
I now feel a bit of a fool - the SuSE utility for doing this is
/sbin/update-pciids

My tips for anyone working with very recent graphics cards - update the
pciids,
And if you are on SuSE update to the very latest SaX version. You should
be able to
Use the SuSE One-Click install for the Nvidia drivers.
