I downloaded and installed the game fine, but when I attempt to play it it fails to launch. The Tomb Raider launcher appears just fine, and I can change the options but no matter what I do as soon as I click on play it pops up an error saying "Failed to Initialize Direct3D with Current Settings" and then plops me directly into the settings screen. Turned everything down to minimum or off if possible and there is no change. Different resolutions no change. I downloaded and reinstalled my video drivers and directx with no effect. Turn off SLI in my driver in case that was causing it, but no. Restarted and reverified the game data but no change. I`d rather not completely redownload the game unless there are no other options.Any Ideas would be appreciated.

I am running Windows 7 64 bit on an Intel i7 950, have 6 gigs of ram and dual GTX 460`s. in case you need it i copied the log from tomb raider below.
