I don't understand how to play this game in DX11? I have a 5870, which is a DX11 native card, I played Metro 2033 in DX11 for instance. But whenever I launch Civ V, it gives me a launcher window that says basically "Click here for DX9" and "Click here for DX 10/11"... but the DX 10/11 button doesn't work? I can't actually click it. Makes no sense.

Its a bug with Steam apparently, my labmate had this problem, he solved it by right clicking steam.exe(in the directory) and for some reason compatibility for Vista was checked, uncheck it, see if this solves the problem.

Hmm, thanks, I'll give that a try. I'm not sure why compatibility would be checked, but I'll try it out.

I downloaded it from Steam and the DX10 /11 button works fine
