Both FreeBSD and Linux use XFree86 for its X Window environment.  Video card 
compatibility is handled by XFree86.  So, whether you're using Linux or one 
or FreeBSD, it might be good to bookmark the following page:

http://www.xfree86.org/4.3.0/Status.html

For future purchases, it's also good to know that NVIDIA creates drivers for 
both Linux and FreeBSD.  This has made my purchasing decisions very easy.
