Unless I am misunderstanding, you can't.  See messages #4 and 
#6.  Changes are required to the FreeBSD kernel as well as to the NVidia 

I have no idea what effect this has on 3D acceleration of any kind; I 
only use the driver because the nv driver available when I got the card 
locked up.  Newer Nvidia drivers do as well 

For reference, with a GT6600 and an older nvidia driver I get ~4700fps.  
I neither know nor care whether that is good or not; I can run X which 
is all I care about.  I use Windows for games.
