I''ve read somewhere that you should store all your objects at the origin, and then transform them everytime you update the scene, I know this would be easier for rotations, but wouldn''t it be slow. Obviously all static objects wouldn''t need to be stored at the origin, just the ones that can move/rotate. Also you would only need to transform the objects that are visible. So would this be slow, or is it a common/prefered method???

you have to move objects back to the origin for rotation regardless of anything. so, why not just start everything at the origin, instead of translate to a location, translate back to the origin, rotate it, and then translate back to it''s original location? it doesn''t make sense. start at the origin.

Store all static objects as one object, moving and rotating objects you should store at the origin and transform (T&L now is also supported by hardware!).
