Take a look at the difference in texture detail between Mass Effect and WoW and tell me how you can expect Mass Effect to load them in as quickly. The textures in Mass Effect are about 10,000x more detailed than the textures in WoW are. The file sizes are much, much larger.

And after you do that, take into account the thousands and thousands of audio files the game has to load in for all the characters' speech...

Asus P67 WS Revolution (Tri-SLI)
