It's interesting cause the way I upgraded my HDs was by cloning then resizing the HDs to use all the space so whatever SecuROM is using to check if the computer changed wasn't triggered. Though I am surprised that my video card didn't trigger an activation. Still I can't be sure if it didn't do it without notifying me.
as far as i know, and confirmed by bioware on their forums, mass effect doesn't do stealth activations. if required it will ask.
