I wouldn't get it. It'll cost you so much extra money, money that could be spent elsewhere. If you don't do stupid things, and be careful you should be fine with the manufacturer's warranties.

30 days to Return OR get a replacement, and 1 year to get a replacement

just to clear things up and some products you cant return only to replace and some products like CPU's only get 7 days to replace

but usually, ram and video card and other stuff have limfetime warranties from their manufactuers

If you know what your doing then no, but since its your first build i recommend you get extended warranty. I built my first comp recently and it all went well, except my parts from US havent arrived yet, So would PZEROFGH kindly get his arse on msn so i can discuss it.
