https://www.freebsd.org/doc/handbook/x11.html is your friend :-)

1. Install Xorg (pkg install xorg). Do not install xf86-video drivers,
only modesetting driver, the new way Xorg works.
2. Install DRM KMS video driver for your hardware (pkg install
drm-kmod) and make it load on startup (according to instructions that
shows up after install, or read them here
/usr/ports/graphics/drm-fbsd12.0-kmod/pkg-message).
3. Install any of the dozens available windows managers, for instance
XFCE4 (pkg install -x xfce4) is small rapid and works fine.
4. Startx :-)
