Game takes forever to launch off Steam?

Just bought the game, and whenever I try to launch, it gives me the option of dx9 or dx10/11. I select dx10/11, nothing happens, and then I select dx9, nothing happens. Eventually the game loads up but it takes forever.

I probably should have asked, but any fixes for this? :P

Unless you got like a 4+ year old rig then it shouldent take too long to start the game.

Your PC specs?

Personally I have better performance from the game via DX10 or DX11.
