I'm planning to buy a new PC. I'm going to have a Corsair Obsidian Series 750D Full Tower Gaming Case, i7 4960x CPU, GTX 780 Ti Superclocked GPU, 32GBs 2400Hz Corsair Vengeance Ram and a Asus Rampage motherboard and probabably a Mechanical hardrive 2 SSD's and a Corsair Liquid cooler with some GPU and CPU fans.

And also I was wondering if I should build my own PC (by hand) or order it from a website. Website:CyberPowerPC. What is more cheaper and more safer? Could I get scammed from CyberPowerPC and also is building a PC really that hard and complicated. Because I think I might have a problem with Compatibility. Also are all my parts above compatible? And are they worth it?Also btw I have 1 year experience with PC's and know ALOT. Btw i'm only 16yrs old and also my friend which is a PC Gamer and a Computer technician will be helping me build my PC. Any help would be appreciated :D

Build your own. It will be cheaper and it will be more fun. Also you will be able to show it off to your friends saying it is your own build.

Build your own. Normal its cheaper, as long you don't keep buying better and newer parts all the time. (the specs above should last many years so wont be a problem for you). Its pretty easy to build the rig on your own, it takes some time the first time, but its fun all the way.

For compatibility, just make sure the MoBo got the correct socket and can handle the 2400 Hz ram.
