GPU DRIVERS
I can only speak for Nvidia on this one - the latest 306.23 WHQL drivers are out and will provide the best performance for Borderlands 2 and a variety of other games. Download them at geforce.com / geforce.co.uk

NVIDIA PROMO
If you buy a 660ti graphics card or above at a participating retailer, you get one voucher to download Borderlands 2 free. Bear in mind that this does not include any pre-order bonuses because its a code for the full game.

PRELOAD
Steam Pre-load went up on 14th so you're free to download the game now saving you some time come release day. Its 4.5GB

RELEASE DATE
Speaking of which, its the 18th for US and 21st for EU.

EARLY VPN UNLOCK
If your outside US and want to play on 18th you can use a VPN to spoof your IP address and unlock the game. It pretty simple and the risk is minimal if you just want to unlock and play.

1. download free vpn app, install and run (most other vpn tools will work as well)
2. launch steam and click on borderlands 2
3. should go through some checks and if successful unlock the game

COMFY COUCH PC GAMING
Borderlands 2 PC + Steam Big Picture Mode + 360 Controller + Couch = :D

BORDERLANDS 2 ENGINE
Borderlands 2 runs on a heavily modified version of UE3 engine and is DX9 only for PC
