This is only a warning and I get it on every FreeBSD system I have that
is running x.org 7.3.  I have had no problems with X.

I have a Radeon not an nVidia, but the external monitor on it works
fine. I just turn it on with xrandr, set the mode, and all is good. (I
have only tried same-as.) Looks like your issue is nVidia specific.

Here is what my Radeon shows:
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1400 x 1050, maximum 1400 x 1200
VGA-0 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
DVI-0 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
LVDS connected 1400x1050+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 0mm x 0mm
   1400x1050      59.9*+
   1024x768       60.0  
   800x600        60.3  
   640x480        59.9  
S-video disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
