Don't bother with the SSD in raid either. Not worth the money you're throwing at it at all.

Most defintively, but it looks fishy. 2 SSD, a GTX 480, for under 1500$... and it includes office... For now, I would stay away from it, but if its a big brand store and its not refurb, I guess it is totally worth it. Overkill for SC2, all the way.

A refurb's warranty is 90 days if I am not mistaken. Take in consideration you'd have to pay around 500$ for a single GTX 480 new. Add all the other stuff and you've got to be thinking something is wrong somewhere.
