likewise. unfortunately intel chipsets are very common and you may not be able to avoid them. I used to be a fan of ATI but when on Linux they totally made a mess of the driver support, it would crash the xserver if you tried to install the driver. found Nvidia to be much more supportive of other platforms. Ultimately Nvidia is the best option people. Now that I am aware of intel not working in the future with FreeBSD I will look for Nvidia instead. question: so what will happen if Nvidia decides to drop FreeBSD support by some chance?
