I have been reading up on the matter but some things remain confused after reading through both this list and, namely what support I might expect for things such as accelerated graphics using either an Nvidia or ATI chipset.

ATI Radeon 9200 + XFree 4.3.0 + FreeBSD-4.9-STABLE work wonderful. Don't
choose NVidia, NVidia drivers still cause problems (reboot, panics,
lockups). ATI simply rocks compared to it -- it is very stable.
