Default An office desktop setup - build or buy?

Hi all;

I'd like to build an office desktop with the following features:

• 2 dual head video cards (to support up to 4 monitors)
• 8 gb memory
• 256gb SSD
• At least 2 USB 3.0 ports

The processor and other features don't need to be special - these are the main features I need.

It's hard to find a desktop that includes an SSD as the primary drive. I don't want or need a larger platter HD, but I don't have the tech skills to replace it with an SSD by myself. I think I can add the 2 dual head video cards though, so long as I can find a motherboard to support them.

Based on the above, should I start with a stock system and pay someone to modify it, or is it better to just have a local shop put something together for me?
