You might want to look at http://www.pcbsd.org/
It's basically FreeBSD with KDE, and also features a live system.

If you need to boot from a usb device you can follow this guide:

PC-BSD *is* FreeBSD that has a nice GUI installer. FreeBSD does not have graphical tools for installing, setting up the desktop. If you opt for FreeBSD I suggest that you check out the FreeBSD handbook first.
PC-BSD is a good way to get your feet wet with FreeBSD.

+1. It doesn't get any better, i.e., easier, than PC-BSD, which as has already been pointed out, is FreeBSD with a desktop environment installed and ready to run. PC-BSD defaults to KDE, but you also have the choice of Xfce and several other desktops (GUIs).

PCBSD is like a Slackware-ized FreeBSD out of the box.

That's the full 10.0 release.

You'll still need to run the updater software once installed, so it'll update the system to the current software. You'll also need to run the ports update as well and install some binary packages as well for ease of use.

PC-BSD has a fully ready-to-use release of FreeBSD with a lot of the binary packages already added in, as well as a GUI installer that can use the ZFS file system far more effectively. You should try it before you try FreeBSD really. PC-BSD is at 10.0.3 release which is the current up-to-date model.
