I don't see it on the list of tested motherboards.  If compatibility is
really important to you, check the list:
http://www.freebsd.org/platforms/amd64/motherboards.html

It may work, it may not.  Just because its not on the list, doesn't mean
that it won't work, it just hasn't been tested. OTOH, it may not be on
the list because it doesn't work.  Just from skimming the list, it seems
that many nVidia chipsets have issues with their ethernet controller.

If this is the case than why not include a "Doesn't Work" list as well? That
would stop the guessing on whether it doesn't work or hasn't been tested. If
hardware doesn't appear on the "It Works" nor the "Doesn't Work" lists, than
one can assume that it hasn't been tested.

This could save a lot of headaches (and $$$).
