I wouldn't recommend either.  A recent KnoppMyth would crash very reliably
on my amd64 box (with PCI-express card) within a few seconds of X starting.
I was able to boot into VESA 800x600 mode (instead of the nvidia driver)
and my pvr500 worked precisely 50% of the time, provided the system didn't
hang (which it did regularly).  FreeBSD/i386 and multimedia/pvrxxx work
perfectly on the same box.
