EDIT: Thanks for the tip on the thread. I hopped on over but that's an awful lot to read. I'll be here for a while.

I see. You must shoot comp. Which, that may be the preferred way among comp shooters. I was speaking from a tactical view point based on my training. If you hold that preferred position for a long duration your bound to fatigue much quicker. Both elbow south will: 1)add support with your trigger arm 2)allow for less fatigue 3)create a smaller target for whomever is trying to shoot you

For instance here is a professional. Not weird ass unconventional Joe Schmoe

But I digress

I thought I needed an SSD, then I noticed my hard drive was getting clobbered.

I was at 4GB, added 4GB, and now load times are much better. A friend had a similar experience.

I have 8 GB of RAM and still have relatively long load times although I don't have anything to compare it to as I've always had 8 GB of RAM when playing BF3. It still seems very slow to me and my game doesn't use more than about 3 or 3.5 GB.

My guess is that you were hitting the 4 GB limit and then your HDD was thrashing because you have virtual memory enabled.

Go into your advanced system settings and disable virtual memory. (Set the page file to zero for all drives.) That should speed everything up on your computer, not just BF3.

Yes, I was hitting the limit on 4GB with Battlefield 3. It runs over 6GB after a few hours of gaming.
