Default Advantages of barebones

Hi everybody,
As many of you know i am in the market for a new computer and am not sure weather i want to build or buy. I am worried that if i build and somthing goes wrong and it doesn't work I am stuck with $1000 of fryed parts Well I was seeing that places like newegg have bare bone systems and was wondering why you would buy one of these instead of getting the parts yourself. Is there an advantage or reason i am not getting or what?

Ok barebones are goo in some ways for the parts they bring something times or jsut the cost it self. Buts its really best to pick your parts you get what you paid for really. I mean if your not a gamer more for home use barebones would be good. but gaming i would go with Build and pick the parts.

Try americancomputech, You can have them assemble the parts that you pick yourself, and it's got a warrenty for 3 yrs!

For easy parts like optical drives,HDD's, video cards, and the like You can always buy those seperately!
