There are plenty of people who fall into that category! However, nVidia
have already said that due to internal implementation details of the
FreeBSD amd64 kernel, they're  unable to produce an amd64 driver just yet.
There was some discussion of it a while ago - check out the archives for
more details and links. I don't recall if it was this list, or amd64@
so try them both.
