Hello all, im looking at getting an new Imac, im sold on everything but one thing, so im hoping that you pros can help me out a bit. I like to play games on my computer, im not a hard core gamer, but like to play every once in a while. here are the specs im looking at for the imac i want.

Display:27 inch( i love the size of that screen)
Processor: 3.4GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7
Memory: 8GB 1333MHz DDR3 SDRAM - 2x4GB
Hard Drive:1TB Serial ATA Drive + 256GB Solid State Drive
Graphics:AMD Radeon HD 6970M 2GB GDDR5

Will i be able to play games like Starcraft 2(or anyother game for that matter) on ultra settings? do the games look clean/good? will the set up im looking at cut it? the reason i ask is because i know that with a PC you can upgrade the Graphics easy but i dont think that you can do that with a Imac ( correct me if im wrong) so with this graphics card cut it for a a couple of years? i will be studying computer programming and would like to know if the imac is good for that kind of thing? fill free to tell me what you all think or if you think i should change something to make it better.
PS. is the solid state drive worth it?
