I have an nVidia 6200 which should be good enough, but looks like  
Compiz wants much more. For the final release we might want to  
compile a list of cards that do and don't work well with Compiz. It  
could help avoid a lot of frustration among people who are trying out  
PC-BSD for the first time. The last thing we need is a lop of people  
not sticking with it because Compiz doesn't like their graphics card.
