FYI on Nvidia Web Driver Updates:
Users of Nvidia's web drivers should know that new OS X updates (versions or later build numbers after Security Updates) break any currently installed Nvidia web graphics driver. I'd switch to the default Apple driver and reboot before updating, if your card is supported with the default drivers. If not, wait for a Nvidia driver update. (Some non-Mac EFI cards are not supported by default OS X drivers.)
UPDATE: See July 21st news for new Nvidia drivers and CUDA update download pages. (Drivers for macOS Sierra 10.12.6 and new build numbers of OS X 10.11.6 and 10.10.5 after installing Security Update 2017-003.)
