It's a new & stable install.


I do not follow Nvidia much.  Since you are in stable, depending on how new your video card is, you might need the Nvidai propriertary blob.  The nvidia tool scoops up the latest straight from Nvidia, but you can get a Debian Nvidia blob. 
Try the Debian wiki for the Debian Nvidia info. .  Work beckons bye. 
Search forum for "More info easier via inxi"    If requested -  no inxi, no help for you by  me.
