I meant if I could trust it or if it is a scam.

If it is a well known company, it won't be a scam. Ebay and Amazon are a collection of many people and just because you know the Amazon name does not mean all of the people selling on Amazon are reliable.

Then how come they have it so cheap? Do they have some kind of agreement with Adobe for cheaper prices?

As an alternative, I would also check at the local stores. They often have good offerings in the Sunday ads. Here is an Office Depot example.

Dell XPS 8700 X8700 3646BLK Desktop Computer With 4th Gen Intel Core i7 Processor by Office Depot

They may also put the SSD in for you.

I think ssds are just not for me. I will just order online since i could make my own config.

As you like. You are just missing a great opportunity to really, really speed up your system. Any $400 system with an SSD will be faster than an XPS 8700 without an SSD. I have 7 PCs and all have SSDs. Would not live without them.

Ok Ill think about it. But I really don't think it would be worth the price and risk. (For me)

What price - you can get a good 128GB SSD for $80. And what risk - I have done it many times and I had no clue when I did my first one. That was 7 years ago when nobody knew anything about SSDs. Now you have all the helpers you can possibly need. Most senior people here know everything about SSDs.

Have a look at this thread which has 150 pages only about SSDs. Show us your SSD performance 2

And that is a continuation of this thread with 263 pages. Show us your SSD performance

Samsung is good. I like Mushkin. OCZ - some are good, some are not. I have 3 OCZs. But that changes all the time. So check again when you are ready.
