I will definitely be getting the PC version of this game. Is anyone else planning on getting the PC version? I'd love to play this with the WOF group some day.

Shader Model 3.0. RS Vegas requires a video card that supports SM 3.

I think it is because both Vegas and SC: Double Agent use the Unreal 3 engine.

It's just mega-lame that they wouldn't have a fall-back option. ATI waited for the X1800 series to implement it, which was the nvidia 7800 series level, yet nvidia had it as far back as their 6600.
So, if I'd bought nvidia instead when I bought my X800, I'd have it already. I did not, so I'm screwed.
I'd like to get a new card, but my mobo is AGP, and pretty much they've abandoned AGP. I can get an X1950 Pro for $300 AGP, or for around $225 in PCI-E! The 7800GS that Panzer has is like the weakest 7800 nvidia has ever made.
