I have built a couple of systems, and bought one that was built for me, and have bought a pre-made system, Dell.
Of ease of use and lack of problems I would have to go with a pre-made system. With the matching componets in a pre-made system they just seem to work better together when it comes to problems. It really all depends on how you plan to use the system. If you just want to surf and email go with the pre made system. If you are going to use it for other apps then building one is the way to go.
If you are going to be a power user and use lots of the system resources building one is really the only way to go. Just my thoughts.
