ATI 3D works on my Radeon 9600Pro lightning fast and this is OSS DRI driver.

The OSS ATI driver supports chipsets up to the 92xx series. The 95xx and newer series aren't supported, unless ATI has recently released new specs.

I should add before I get flamed to death, the by support I mean support for accelerated 3D graphics.

FreeBSD does have NVidia driver from NVidia (which I use) and older cards (like Matrox) are supported by DRI/DRM. It works fine. ATI drivers I'm not sure about.
