	I have t61p with mentioned card.
	x11/nvidia-driver works well for me (at least quake, doom, compiz work).

Thanks for all the replies.

I bought a T61p for 220 GBP - what bliss!

BIOS update - no problem
HEAD r246552 - no problem
wireless with iwn0: <Intel Wireless WiFi Link 4965> - no problem
sound with hdac0: <Intel 82801H HDA Controller> - no problem
CD-RW with cd0: <HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-U10N 1.05> Removable CD-ROM SCSI-0 device
  and sysutils/cdrtools-devel - no problem
X with nvidia0: <Quadro FX 570M> and x11/nvidia-driver - no problem
flash as per http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/desktop-browsers.html
  ( Firefox and Adobe Flash Plugin) - no problem

In fact, no problems at all!

I can't recommend it enough.
