Not sure about your splash... but have you investigated the vidcontrol
VESA_800x600 mode?  This might help a little (looks great on my laptop).

  In your kernel config you will need VESA and SC_PIXEL_MODE.  Then you
should add something to rc.conf's allscreens_flags that sets up every
screen at boot.

  Hope that's some help,
