Spendng a few minutes setting up a game for optimal play for the gain of better fidelity is worth it. Enjoy your longer loading times, swapping disks, while it loads in a quarter of the time on my PC and I'm up and running.
In a lot of ways PC gaming is getting easier than console gaming. It seems like every flipping time I turn on my PS3 or play a game I have to patch the console or the game.
