Origin blows... I don't even know my name on it, I just log in download my games and quit. It's too big of a resource hog to keep running. It even uses more then Steam!

Why would you have to worry about resources with that rig? Origin doesn't run in the background like Stream, only for BF3, so in effect. It's just a non issue unless there is a bug(Origin is still beta).

Origin always runs on the background unless you close the program, it automatically minimizes to the task bar. I bet Star Wars will have it running in the background as well. While I have a good rig I just don't like many programs running especially when they are for the most part useless.

No it does not. BF3 is the only game that need Origin to be running while playing the game. If you start your games from inside Origin then yes, it's running of course but that's only if you want the integration with Origin chat like Stream.

Before this turns into a STEAM IZ BETTAR vs. NO ORIGIN IZ BETTAR debate, the fact that this thread is unnecessary to begin with warrants it's closing.
