Ok, I got the x86 version installed on a Dell 960 w/ Intel 3D Enabled. 
Can anyone confirm this crash on their system:

 From desktop, open PC-BSD Control Panel > KInfoCenter > Graphical 
Information > OpenGL. This seems to crash KDE and boots me back to the 
login screen. In my case, Intel without 3D does the same thing.
