When you buy prebuilt, you're paying for labor that you could be doing yourself.. definitely build your own. Figure out your budget, make a thread asking what components best suit your needs for your budget, buy the components, and watch YouTube videos on how to install components. It's not as hard as it looks, everything is very modular.

if you have any doubts with your build, simply post what you are considering buying here. People will comment and make suggestions to it and making it better.

Then go on youtube and watch a few videos and making your own computer. It is all plug and play really.

What will you be using your computer for? Gaming, websurfing, encoding, CAD?
Unless you're using programs that are optimized for that many cores, going 8-core is a bit of a waste :\

When it comes to gaming, especially games like Planetside 2, many have poor multicore optimization. An i5-2500K/i5-3570K or a high clocked AMD quad core processor can outperform AMD 8-cores and Intel 6-cores

Just wanted to give you a heads up, you're missing a graphics card and hard drive/solid state drive from that list
