Sorry, I should have been more clear, you wouldn't notice the difference between the AxeFx III standard and Turbo. I would get the warranty. It's a computer so you just never know. Even used, it's a lot of money so it's better to be safe than sorry.Thanks bebaldwin. "Coming from a Helix you wouldn't notice the difference" - don't quite know what context you said that in? I ended up ordering the FC12 from fractal, I guess I should have waited. You think the warranty is necessary?
