Driver support for my 6850 was lackluster in the first month or two, but it's been pretty solid since. No real complaints here.

if the free game thing is still going on i'd say origin, if not flip a coin..

DICE’s Alan Kertz dropped a new nugget of Battlefield 3 information today. Twitter member “Madkiller96″ asked Kertz what percentage of a map can be destroyed in Battlefield 3. Kertz’s repines?

“100,000% If you play the map enough times.”

So, you know, now you can finally live out your dreams of having a gunfight in a parking lot if you put enough effort into it!

its posted on xboxdailynews but i doubt it only applies to console..

DICE describes how a carbine rifle can be upgraded with a 4X scope and heavy barrel for long range combat, or it can be equipped with a suppressor, fore-grip and holographic sight for close quarter combat. The image above shows the two versions of the same carbine rifle.
Unlike Bad Company 2, Battlefield 3 weapon unlocks are a bit different, as you will unlock accessories (optics, barrels etc.) for each weapon, rather than unlock them in general for use in all weapons. This means the more you play with a weapon, the more unlocks you get for that specific weapon.
You can read more on the Battlelog entry here.
BF3 Customization info. Pretty cool..
