Xorg and nVidia GeForce 8200 (MCP78S) - a better driver than vesa?

My new machine[1] has a nVidia GeForce 8200 (aka MCP78S) chipset. I run
FreeBSD / amd64 RELENG_7 on it:
root at kg-v2# uname -a
FreeBSD kg-v2.kg4.no 7.1-PRERELEASE FreeBSD 7.1-PRERELEASE #0: Thu Dec
25 15:51:46 CET 2008
root at kg-v2.kg4.no:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC  amd64

It doesn't look like the GPU in this  machine is supported by the nv
driver (yet). And because I run FreeBSD / amd64, I can't use the nvidia
driver, right?
Currently I am using the vesa driver, which works.
Do anyone know of a way to get a better Xorg driver working?
