It depends on whether you're comfortable with putting a pc together yourself. The benefits are well worth it; everything custom suited to your needs, maximised price/performance ratio, no generic bits that might be bundled in a prebuilt system, no pre-installed bloatware.
Sounds daunting, but honestly it's not difficult at all. Just follow a few rules when building:
1. Don't work on carpet - your body builds up static charge easily which you could accidentally zap a part with. If you're worried, just touch any exposed metal part on your computer case before you pick up whatever part you're about to install - it'll ground you and remove any electrical charge your body might be storing.
2. Try not to touch the gold contact pins on parts - oily fingers + chance of shocking the parts as above.
3. Don't force things! Everything fits only one way. It's ok to use a bit of pressure, but if it's hurting you trying to put the bit in, you should probably sit back and reassess what you're trying to do
That's about it. If you can handle remembering those three things, you can build a pc. If you're game to try, reply back and I can give you a recommendation on which parts to buy.
