    I'm really wondering how my HD5850 is going to fair. It did pretty well with the beta...

    Yeah, I have been thinking about that and I'm pretty sure I have one lined up. Pay day just isn't close enough.

    i'm planning on my 2x5850s running it at almost ultra on a 1080p screen. i figure i'll lower shadows and then aa, and hopefully that'll be enough. my single card did well in beta too, but a lot of options were off and ultra wasn't even really available, so that's not a great judge.

    My Q9550 @4.0ghz and 2x5850 crossfired did really well (85 - 120fps). My 970 x6 @4.0ghz and 1 480GTX (90-110fps) did really well also and was very close to both my 5850's. But my Q9550 is really holding back my CF 5850's. I'm waiting on a new board for my 2600k to replace my Q9550. I may try and test crossfire on my 970 and a couple of x6 1055's @4.0ghz. I have 2 2500k's @ 4.5Ghz, but they don't have CF.. I only got them to crunch with.

    Yes. LShift = hold breath. You could also use a bipod with your rifle. With a bipod deployed you have limited movement, but the gun is perfectly level all the time so no need for LShift.

    And I was just being over dramatic about the wait and see thing. I personally didn't have much trouble flying with a keyboard only but I didn't say in the air very long. I suck at dog fights and found the chopper a better fit for my play style.

    The greatest MP game ever made is not even out yet and you want to mod it to remove most of its features? :shadedshu

    They're probably under the impression they are under DDOS attack, but it's all the BF3 players trying to get ahead LOL.

    i'd check your release date manually, mine still said 3am before i did the hide ip thing, even though that countdown said midnight.

    I forgot I had installed that and didn't try it this morning. Its all the same thing.. I was looking for a free trial VPN and I'll just ask for my money back on this one.

    but that's still subject to regional activation times, right? just because you get the disc doesn't mean you can play at midnight, i would be surprised if you could.

    Well I would be willing to chill until activation time but I will go check my regional time.

    Edit: Scratch that school has lame filters I forgot about, anyone able to check EST activation time within the next 20 minutes?
