The Nvidia card reports itself as a GTK-730 which, according to Wikipedia,
appares to be a 2006 vintage card.  Before getting into configuration settings
I need to be sure that I have the correct drivers installed.

What version of the nvidia-driver pkg is required for this card? 440,390.340,
or 304?

Which drm module pkg is required: drm-fbsd12.0-kmod, drm-legacy-kmod, or drm-kmod?
