If you use the code in STEAM them I'm sure you can use it on any computer as long as you use your Steam account to log-in.

I don't think so,but more & more games for the PC require you to have a Steam account & in truth you should have one if you like playing games on your PC.
So much to offer in Steam for gamers.
Games like Call of duty require Steam these days.

thanks for the info, will look at joining steam.
If you buy a retail version you CANNOT redeem the Serial Code on Steam (most likely on Origin though).

If you buy the Steam version then you can only use the expansion packs sold on Steam, not ones brought at retail.
I don't think you can, I remeber when I installed mines on a second computer it wouldn't work on the first anymore.
