Nvidia has always worked well for me as well; Nvidia is one of the only
companies that makes GOOD drivers specifically for FreeBSD. They
actually make the driver, and they have one for more than Windows unlike
some companies. Whenever I have an Nvidia card, I generally know I'll be
doing fine with good hardware, as they have a driver for FreeBSD, Linux,
and Solaris.
