I've got a nVidia card on a FreeBSD-7/amd64 system, and so the
only driver I can use is the xorg-nvidia driver. The driver from the
nVidia is not an option for me. If you have an i386 system, the
driver from nVidia is *MUCH* faster than the xorg driver. Queries to
nVidia about the possiblity of an amd64 compatibile driver led me
to the kernel-feature list that they would like to have before being
able to release a driver form amd64 hosts.
