You wont have to download multiple gigabytes.

By the time the DVD\CD version comes out any bugs the game has will probably be fixed in updates.

If steam ever goes down the crapper, you'll still have a hard copy of the game to play if you have the DVD\CD version.

Only real bad part is having to go to a store, and having to wait another month.
