Smile Compatible Hardware - Video Cards
Hey everyone I need your help! I'm needing to compile a new list of compatible hardware for PC-BSD and need your input. Please tell me what video cards you've used that work great with PC-BSD. Be sure to tell us any details about the video cards that you think might be a substantial benefit for other users as well. Be sure to include the make and model of the card so I can reference it.

Thanks for your help everyone!

A few video cards I have used here that worked perfectly fine:

EVGA SC (superclocked): NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 (2GB GDDR5 RAM version)
EVGA: NVIDIA e-GeForece 8600 GTS
NVIDIA GeForce GT 220 (can't remember manufacturer)

Intel GM965 in a Thinkpad R61 works pretty well.

Intel HD Graphics in a Thinkpad T410 i5 works with very bad performance. No acceleration, It works in VESA mode. It's necessary include Intel KMS modules in PCBSD, otherwise it's not worthy.

How can we be sure our Graphic card is working well?
Is there any command to check the performance on our PC?

Did install went without problems, does monitor work within its nominal resolution, does graphics work adequately without glitches and so on. If answer to all those questions are yes, then most likely your graphic card works, and is compatible.
