Good General MIDI compatible soundfonts to work with NVidia/NForce

Does anybody have any idea where I can download free GM SoundFonts which will work with the NVidia/NForce Soundstorm on-board sound card?

I believe this chip has a wavetable, so I should be able to use the ALSA MIDI to play MIDI Files.

If not, I must use timidity++ which is software synth, which is really a secondary option.

Does anybody know this for sure or anybody point me to the right direction?

I have googled around, but everything I read relates to SB Live card and nowhere is it mentioned whether these soundfonts can be used with NVidia/NForce chipset.

PS. This chipset comes with support for DLS sounds, but I am still unsure whether there is support for the SF2 format.

Also I'm not sure whether asfxload would work with DLS files.
