Recommended Hardware

Is there a list of "recommended" hardware for FreeBSD (i386 in my case)?

I know there is a "Hardware Notes" section in the release notes, that's 
not what I'm asking!

If I was going to build or spec' a system, what subset of the supported 
hardware is best?  I've heard cons, like manufacturer's apathy or 
negativity towards FreeBSD.  I guess Pros would include stable, actively 
developed drivers, consistency and long term availability of products 
(unlike manufacturers who release 3 totally different boards in a year 
with the same model number!), etc...

Thanks for your input,
