No Nvidia on that particular motherboard so the OP is on the safe side.

@OP: I have just installed FBSD amd 64 2 weeks ago to benefit of +4 GB of RAM
and until now i didn't have any kind of problem in compiling and
running applications.

My box is a web/mail/vpn/router/samba (yes i know there shouldn't be
that many services
on the box, but tell my boss that) and all the apps are working like a charm.
