Default Re: FreeBSD x GeForce 6600 troubles

You can use the vesa driver, but the nv driver is preferable as it supports your GPU directly and can take better advantage of the hardware (which translates to better performance, etc.). As to overclocking, neither the vesa nor the nv driver include thermal and/or dynamic clock management, so there's a higher chance of problems/damage to the GPU than with the nvidia driver.
