No, you buy those pieces and they get shipped to your door. You then assemble your PC yourself so you don't get raped for an overpriced PC.

You can either do that, or find the pieces on NCIX.com and then select the option for them to build it for you.

Okay, thanks. How difficult is it to put it all together? If it would be difficult, I know some people who are tech savvy in real life who could help me.

It's not difficult at all.

There's tons of videos of system building (Newegg has some good ones of their own) that can show you how to do it.

Yes it's pretty simple to do, Just take your time and you'll save a bundle and will have all quality parts you picked. This is the newegg video's, there are 3 I think that goes through beginning to end.
