Not a bad price, but it's ALWAYS cheaper to build your own.

Actually, I disagree with the point that it's "ALWAYS cheaper to build your own." Many stores (especially local ones) will build the system for you with no labor charge, and they'll also give you an additional discount just because you're ordering a lot of or all the components from them. They'll usually match the prices of any components you found cheaper elsewhere, then apply their discount.

Ok, it's probably cheaper to have one store build it for you and get a discount than buying all the components from the same store and building it yourself and not getting a discount.

But that's still in a way building your own. I'm talking about pre-built systems. And besides, you can get stuff from a ton of different places on PriceWatch, like I did. Save a ton.
