If you are sure that installed version of nvidia-driver supports your
card, try putting nvidia_load="YES" in /boot/loader.conf. I guess your
problem is vgapci attaching to device, leaving nvidia module without
hardware to attach, like below:

vgapci0 at pci0:5:0:0:     class=0x030000 card=0x40161682 chip=0x040210de
rev=0xa1 hdr=0x00
    vendor     = 'Nvidia Corp'
    device     = 'GeForce 8600 GT'
    class      = display
    subclass   = VGA
