Is this an upgrade, or a new install of 6.0? Many of the threads I've
read regarding the Nvidia driver with 6.0 suggested that the Nvidia
driver be rebuilt after the 6.0 upgrade. In fact, I believe rebuilding
all ports was recommended, which is why I've decided to invest in a
second hard drive to do a new install.
I don't know if it will help, but my own config is pretty much the
same - with a couple extras to omit the logo splash, accelerate
rendering, etc. Of course, I'm still running 5.4.
Try rebuilding the driver from ports - that's probably your best bet.

The more pretentious the corporate name, the smaller the organization.
(For instance, the Murphy Center for the Codification of Human and
Organizational Law, contrasted to IBM, GM, and AT&T.)
