i don't see any problem. There is a product - for example Nvidia 
powersuckers^H^H^H^H^H^H^Hfull 3D accellerators. Their can this, that, 
blah, blah and blah, they don't have FreeBSD support.

There are other products, they can this that blah blah and have FreeBSD 

You need blah blah and blah under FreeBSD, you don't buy nvidia.

end of topic.
