I have had pretty good results looking at man pages for individual drivers. If you already have a system and want to estimate your chance of success, this is a good approach. For example, the radeon(4x) page correctly fails to list my RV516 chipset as supported... 8( And nVidia also provides proprietary FreeBSD drivers for their chipsets, so their website may be helpful. I don't know if ATI's proprietary driver is usable on FreeBSD. Keep in mind that the vesa driver will get almost anything working, although without the full performance of a chipset-specific driver. The "Xorg -configure" command is quite good at selecting the correct driver, so it is often easier to just try it and see what happens rather than reading a lot of driver documentation to see if your chipset is supported. The x.org web site is a poor place to look for documentation, so you should probably look at the man pages at freebsd.org if you haven't already installed x.org on your system.
