As a long term user and admirer of pstricks, I think it is worth pointing out an excellent option that does not get much publicity here: XeLateX.
It works with beamer and allows to use pdf, jpeg, png graphics in the same document, plus tikz and pstricks. 

I have been using beamer with XeLaTeX and a lot of pstricks figures, and I see no issues.

I think it is time to give XeLaTeX (and, probably, LuaLaTeX) a proper look.
