I have an nVidia GEForce FX 5900 XT Video Card with the latest drivers (84.21 Version). How can I tell if I have SM 2.0 or SM 3.0?

SM2.0... and the SM2.0 rendering on the FX cards is about half the speed of the equivalent ATI cards unless the game developers specifically optimise for it.

The demo ran perfectly, although the option for NG was greyed out.

BTW, thanks for answering quickly...getting the game this afternoon.

....... option for NG was greyed out.

The Demo didn't support NG graphics.

Yeah, you won't be able to run 'next gen' on that card at any decent frame rate, but it should play the game in normal mode without any major problems.
