The nvidia drivers only complain about missing gcc-8 if you're using a non-standard kernel for your Debian release that was compiled against gcc-8.

If this is referred to me I did not have any problem with nvidia-driver and gcc.

I just wanted to install the 418 because the 410 is not enough for some latest game, 4K and dxvk.

418.74 is in stretch-backports. If it wasn't at that time, the correct procedure would have been to backport it yourself--it's very simple. Upgrading gcc should be the very, very, very, very last thing you should ever try, not the first.

The wiki does leave out that you do really need to upgrade at least one packaging program first from stretch-backports, debhelper 12. But that's listed in the build-depends of the nvidia-drivers debian/control file, so you will be notified of that in the error message when the build fails.
