Unless I am misunderstanding, you can't. See
http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=52388 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.
