it will probably be ok.
you really get a lot more computer when you build it yourself. sometimes it seems like you get a better deal with the pre builts and then there is the non existent 'im not having to build this and thats a headache' cost, but in the end, you know that they are quality parts instead of a mystery meat compilation.
warranties are best when you dont have to use them. In all of my builds, the worst case scenario has been when something arrived broken. no big deal and send it back for a quick replacement. With all of the prebuilts that i have or family has gotten, there have been problems. even though they are warrantied in most cases, that is still a hassle in taking 2 weeks for them to accept it back and another even longer time for them to repair it... maybe.
