Its time for the 64bit Steam client...
If you're referring to 32-bit drivers, you still need those to run 32-bit games....

Today had the same problem on fresh Mint 19. Not good at all for newbies..

I gave up. Wiped root partition and installed 18.04. Went badly at first. No screen display as the built in driver didn't work on my 970. Had to do a nomodeset to get in. Again, newbies will just give up. I might soon need a new distro.

Not wanting to belittle you, but you should already know that this is quite common for Nvidia hardware and can't be helped. Not without Nvidia itself (who doesn't care).

It's the first time I've had an nvidua issue for an age. I always separate home and root for this reason so it's easy to dump and start again.
