The nvidia 260.x drivers are no longer listed in any repo, but the RPMS exist in the mirror (sorry for the linewrap):

260 is the current version, it's name is xorg-x11-drv-nvidia. I don't believe there was a different name for the current version previously, only the old versions get different names. From puias5, xorg-x11-drv-nvidia is version 195.
