Go NVIDIA every time :)
The newer ATI cards don't work well, if at all on BSD, and the NVIDIA
drivers will often give you the least amount of trouble.
As for multi-core, yes it does help when building PBIs. A lot of port
builds use multiple threads / jobs now, so the extra cores will benefit
you in this case.
