Not sure about 8.x. As far as I'm concerned SB850 seems to be supported 
fairly well under -CURRENT. My present setup:
Phenom II 970;
AsRock 890GX Extreme4 (it's AMD 890GX/SB850, SATA-3, USB3 etc.);
SATA-3 HDD (Hitachi);
FreeBSD amd64-CURRENT updated some every 2-3 weeks since the last May.
So far everything seems to work properly.
