Additional Note from Derek French:

The Mass Effect Config program will automatically adjust your settings on first run, to attempt to give you an optimal play experience. As with all PC games, computer performance varies from system to system and adjustments can be made via the Config or through the in-game options to tailor your experience.
The "Mass Effect Config program" in itself sounds epic, extreme, and ground breaking. (I told you buzz words were fun). But in all seriousness: it's nice to see a game out for PC that isn't going to need a nuclear power station to run it.

Happy gaming, PC-ers!

I 'gin to be a-weary of the sun,
And wish the estate o' the world were now undone.
