Does FreeBSD 6.0 fully support PCI-Express?

I've been having troubles getting OpenGL applications' performance up to
par. I have an Nvidia Geforce 6800GT with a PCI-Express interface and I
use nvidia's closed FreeBSD drivers.
I have been told that FreeBSD (and consequently the nvidia driver) do not
fully support PCI-Express which makes my card operate at the same speed of
a plain old PCI bus, which would be a logical explanation for my troubles.
I have however not been able to find _anything_ on the matter on google
and I am now wondering how much truth there is to this.
My question is in the subject, I hope someone can clarify this as I it
will help me decide to get an AGP card instead or perhaps keep trying to
figure out if I have misconfigured something.
Thanks in advance,
