If I recall correctly there are two nvidia drivers, one "current" and
one "legacy" (or something like that). By default, the "current" one is
included on the PC-BSD install media, but you might end up needing the
"legacy" one for the older card (I don't recall if the "legacy" driver
is also on the install media).
