1). Even if you d/l it from Steam, it still comes with the SecuROM fiasco (which is apparently causing problems in some anti-virus software like AVG as well as those who wish to play their copy of the game over multiple computers).
2). If you don't have widescreen, then you're affected - The game was intended for widescreen & supposedly stretched to accommodate a "normal" screen.
3). I don't require SM 3.0, the game does & that's affecting a lot of people.
Really, from my understanding of the situation, the pirates have already taken care of the SecuROM issue in their copies. So, the copy protection problems are once again only hurting the valid consumer.
I'm glad that you don't have any issues with the game but not everyone has had the luxury of sharing your flawless experience.

Really I thought the minium said 128 meg and dx9c support.
Isn't that why so many people are confused, as they have cards that with both listed features but it didn work on their machines becasue they are SM2?
