If I decide to give BF3 a two day break, I just uninstall 306.97 and install 314.07. I have probably installed and reinstalled at least 20 times this week alone lol.
Have you tried using a RECENT driver ... like 331.82? I don't see in your list of things where you have.
Further, it sounds like you are having an issue with certain drivers getting better FPS than others for certain games. That is totally different than "Just not working at ALL" like people have with Crossfire in ANY DirectX version in Windowed Mode. Then there is the whole stuttering issue that doesn't work, and screws up performance, even in Fullscreen Mode with multiple monitors or very high resolution single monitors.
But at least you have a solution to get your games to WORK at maximum FPS. It doesn't matter HOW FAR BACK a driver you go with AMD, THEY ALL have the same issue ... ie there ISN'T A FIX ... even if it is inconvenient.
