The FreeBSD NVIDIA kernel driver does not support GeForce cards above 7900GTX. 
If they did I would've bought a couple myself, instead I bought a cheap Forsa 
7900GTX until there's support for the higher cards.

There was a thread on one of the lists from zander(NVIDIA) about some needed 
functionality to improve PCIe, add SLI, and lots of other crap I have no 
understanding of.

As for X.org, it also looks like it doesn't support your card :-( only 
supports upto the *7800*
