list the parts here, cause we can't see what's in your cart.

as a rule, a pre-built system will cost you about 2-300 dollars more than if you were to build it yourself.

We cant see your cart man. Just post specs and price but most likely you are going to get a resounding "you should build it yourself" from this forum. So let me be the 2nd(edit damn im slow) to say you should build it yourself.

let me put it this way: if it looks like it fits, it fits. and with inserting the CPU on the mobo, if you have to apply pressure to get it to sit, you're putting it in the wrong way.

if you follow that you won't break anything. you just may need to switch slots to get better performance.

When you get the motherboard read the manual first there is alot of helpful information in there.

If you are mechanically inclined at all it will be a cake walk. In my old phone support days(where i got all my most of my grey hair, the rest of it was my ex) I walked a 80 yr old lady through a Motherboard replacement because the damn sale rep save her a whopping 10 bucks by selling a parts only warranty, it took awhile but we got er done. Hopefully that's encouraging.

Pcpartpicker sources the parts for the best price, you could buy it all from one store like newegg but the price does go up a bit.
