IMO I think it really depends on what you want to do.  The  
pg_functions are the *most* robust and full featured.  There are  
problems with PDO (mostly function related at this point).  That  
being said, PDO is great to work with when you get into it, and learn  
your way around it.   If your project is pgsql only and will only be  
pgsql only, I'd suggest using the pg_ functions.  I use both  
extensively, but only use PDO on projects where I want other  
programmers to be able to extend my work with other dbms support.  If  
you're new to PHP db programming, PDO might not be the easiest way to  
go, it's still a little rough around the edges.  Good luck and let me  
know if you need any help with either.  There's also a pgsql+php list  
you might want to jump on:
