Default Should I build my own or get this?...

Should I built my own gaming PC or get this one that is already prebuilt. Please take a few minutes to look at the site and the stats of the PC. I think the graphics card that comes with it is the greatest you can get. Also, im not an OCer so I dont need a PC that OC's or anything like such. Thanks.... heres the link of the PC

http://www.ex-limit.com/GMPC/LS-NC2DE6600/E6600.html

So should I build my own or get that one ^^^?

Edit: heres another link on the ebay website. For some reason this one says 2GB of memory and the other one says 1GB of memory

http://cgi.ebay.com/Core-2-Duo-E6600...QQcmdZViewItem

Build your own, it will be more fun and save you some money, they are making a few hundred selling that bundled to you like that.

Do u guys think you can build me a computer at around $1,500 price range with 19" or higher widescreen monitor?

Here's what I prefer or want with it....

Intel E6600
2GB Memory - Not for OCing, I dont OC.
500GB Hard Drive
Windows Vista - Lowest price you can find
512 MB SLI Ready GPU
Any PSU that can handle the graphics card
Any MOBO's that supports SLI with Firewire too would be nice , if not I can just buy a Firewire card. Also, I want 2 PCIex16 slots or something like that, two of them I think is what I need to use SLI. I dont know, do you guys know?
19"-22" Widescreen LCD Monitor.

Thanks guys. Hopefully you can come up with a Wish List for me thanks.
