which driver should i use?
i am upgrading my box to freebsd 7.0, and was given a msi fx5200 td128lf card by a friend. since this is an older card i was wondering what is the install procedure and which nvidia driver i should use. also is there anything special i need to do to config xorg or opengl? i would'nt ask but i need minimal down time since this is my development box. thanks.

Re: which driver should i use?
That card will work with the driver in /usr/ports/x11/nvidia-driver. After installing, you really just need to switch from the 'nv' driver to the 'nvidia' driver in your xorg.conf file and reboot. You can also check the readme that comes with the driver for further options.
