Should I build or a gaming pc or buy one?

Now first I must state that the last time I dealt with computer parts did not end up well. I broke my HP desktop while attempting to upgrade the graphics card. I did not wear an anti static wristband resulting in static on the motherboard. Yet here I am again, since playing games on my 2010 Macbook Pro is not a pleasant experience. So having experienced failure in the past should I save myself the hassle of just build a new computer and buy a pre built system or should i attempt to build one? My budget is around 1500. I live in Canada.
