Well parts out now will definatly be outdated by next christmas. As far as building it, its really easy man. I can put together a complete pc in 15 minutes. Thats also all stock system, no aftermarket heatsinks for the vid card or memory. Parts all snap in and your done. On a level of 5, id give it a 2. All you need is a screw driver and a little bit of time. Theres plenty of write ups on the web as well, just search google and you can get a full write up with pictures as well.

Good point, don't be like the guy who cut part of his card, and tried to fit it into a PCI-Express slot.
