Unless you have a very old machine, 486 or 1st. generation Pentium, you'll be looking to install the i686 versions if they exist. However, if all that's available is the i386, it's still acceptable.
Of course, if you've installed the X86_64 kernel (64 bit operation) use the X86_64 programs unless there's very special circumstances.
