Well, I don't have any widescreen problems, but my sound is all messed up. Very choppy and crackly. Searching the 2k forums revealed I'm not the only Audigy owner with this problem and no real fix is posted that I could find.
As far as Steam issues, you should have seen the brick and mortar issues I had today. First two stores didn't have it and didn't even get it today (including Best Buy). Circuit City did have it, but I couldn't get anyone to take my money at the register after ten minutes so I yelled an obscenity, chucked the game on the ground, and walked out. 4th store didn't have it but I finally got it at the 5th friggin store I hit tonight.
