I got Borderlands with the 3 DLC's a little while ago, but could never play the game due to its nasty habit of GSOD'ing my older E6850 & GTX260.
Now that I have an i7-860 & HD5870, nothing in this game slows the machine down! How far in on the main story should I play before branching-out into the DLC's?
it is hard to really tell anyone when to go to the DLC, but, here is some info on how i play
there are technically 3 playthroughs
Playthrough 1 - if you complete all the quests in the main game...you should be around level 31-34....i do not play any of the DLC on this playthrough
Playthrough 2 - after you complete all the main quests from Playthrough 1, this playthrough will be available...all enemies will start at around level 31-34(which is around where your character is at) and go up to 50 in the main game....
i usually play the Zombie Island DLC somewhere in the middle of the main quest....
the Moxxi DLC you can pretty much play at anytime on any playthrough... i would recommend around the middle of the 2nd playthrough....
once you complete the main quests for playthrough 2....that is the time to go to the Knoxx DLC....you will be around level 50 and the enemies start at 48-52
Playthrough 2.5 for the main game boosts all enemies to 48-51...you get to this playthrough after completing all the main quests from playthrough 2
I'm running an E6850, and two 8800GTX's in SLI...and I've NEVER had any problems with Borderlands, much less any issues running it at max settings and Frame Rates.
Kids now adays and their sense of time.../sigh
I'd recommend after Old Haven.
Ditch any shock or corrosive weapons before going to the zombies. They're immune.

DLC 3 General Knoxx is good, but lots of driving and new cool weapons. Armory and Craw for loot. *BUY*
DLC1 Dr Ned Zombie: didn't really like it. I not a zombie person. *NEH*
DLC2: Moxi: is small and just an arena. But it has a BANK feature that lets you store weapons. Which can be worth the cost. *BUY*
Overall good luck and have fun. Lots of addicted co-op players who can help you level up in the missions. Also recommend trying willowtree and modding your backpack spaces.. to carry more (850 slots.

ps. the PS3 version crashes a lot. PC is okay.
