Default Nvidia 8800 GTS hard freeze

Hello all,

I've bought a Nvidia 8800GTS 320MB DDR and i'm trying to get it working with

I've installed Xorg 7.2 and the nvidia driver. The driver detects the card
correctly and displays the card info correctly.

When I launch Xorg with the nvidia driver I get a striped green screen and
the machine freezes completely. I can't see any X logs because it crashes

FreeBSD 6.2-STABLE cvsuped today. Kernel is stripped down for my hardware and it's SMP.

The Machine:
Intel Pentium D 820
2GB PC600 Dual channel DDR
300GB SATAII disk
Motherboard ASRock 775Dual-880Pro
Nvidia Geforce 8800 GTS 320MB DDR

The card and overall system works with windows XP.

I added the HorizSync and VertRefresh to the correct values present in the
monitor manual. Removed Glcore and dri and made sure glx is enabled. I also
tried to set NvAgp to 0 (just in case) and still the same result: green with
black strips screen + hard crash on the machine (keyboard locks don'tt
answer too).

Thanks in advance for any tip!
