nVidia drivers == better on 32-bit so I hear, so I would assume that's a fair reason to go with i386 instead of amd64 -> not that I bother with X that much lol.
Others here would know better about the drivers performance.
lol they only work on 32bit. theres a great thread about this crap on nVnews.
The reason there is no FreeBSD 64 bit driver is because of the shortcomings of the FreeBSD kernel, not because of nvidia.
UNIX was not designed to stop you from doing stupid things, because that would also stop you from doing clever things.
