CUDA is only needed for physx support, which I doubt is working under wine. CUDA is the "Common Unified Driver Architecture" from nVIDIA. So, its obviously not needed.
As for OpenGL and proper running of the game, not needed either. I play Dungeons and Dragons Online, and one of the performance hacks is a tweak to force some settings in D3D. And to be honest, on my iMac with a x2600, the game runs fine at mostly max settings. I am sure it would be perfect without Wine.
I currently am at everyone else's state on both my Fedora 12 and Ubuntu 9.10 64-bit installs. If I come up with anything I will share.
