You obviously don't realize that PC-BSD doesn't develop their own video drivers.

You want accelerated DRI on PC-BSD with newer ATI cards newer than a Radeon 9200? Go bitch to X.org or ATI. PC-BSD has absolutely nothing to do with that.

Lets just assume the drivers are there but nobody has PBIed them yet. Will PC-BSD be responsible then? This is just a scenario, I don't know if the drivers are there or not but when I custom built my PC I chose NVIDIA for this very reason (X.ORG) and has never let me down.

Either way, I have confidence in PC-BSD, I know if there are drivers for X, they will be packaged.
