nvidia offers a new FreeBSD /amd64 ready 64Bit driver, 260.19.44. We are 
about to equipt several boxes with newer nVidia Fermi based graphics 
cards (570 and 560Ti). On Linux boxes (Suse 10.XX, I do not know, a 
recent one) a GTX570 won't work with the older nvidia 256.53 driver, we 
had to update to the most recent 260.XX driver via YAST. Now I suspect a 
similar problem in FreeBSD.

Well, nvidia provides informations about how to install the driver but I 
would prefere the ports-solution.

Thanks in advance,
