I have heard that this game scales really really well on a Quad core CPU (UE3 Engine) so I would love to see if my FPS would be a bit higher in the CPU limited areas with lots of characters and AI on the screen when I go to Quad core.

Capt what OS are you using because judging by your specs you should be getting the same perf or better than me. I am on Vista 64 myself.
I'm using Vista x64.

Mass Effect runs fine for me, I just always want smoother framerates.

Once you get used to gaming at 85fps solid with vsync and triple buffering (most Source engine games run that fast at 2048x1536), its hard to settle for less than half of that, even for a few seconds.

Some people are Anti-Aliasing nazis... but I'm a framerate nazi. I rarely use AA because it always causes framerate drops at the worst times.
