Have two computers I like but need help making a decision.  Haven't built a PC before so that is why I'm so far leaning towards option one.

 

Option 1: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/cyberpowerpc-gamer-ultra-desktop-amd-fx-series-16gb-memory-2tb-hard-drive-black-red/1113035.p?id=1219470057715&skuId=1113035

 

Option 2: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/ksxjK8

Only you can say how comfortable you are will building.  If you're not comfortable, go with a manufactured machine.  If you feel comfortable in assembling your own machine you can go with option 2.

 

I've gone both ways and these days it depends on what I want, how fast I need it, and what it will be used for that drive my decision.

Hi there and welcome to BC. Just FYI building a computer is not really difficult and there are tons of how-tos on youtube and around the web.  You can typically build a better machine for the money or if you want to pick out a pre-built system you can go with someplace like magicmicro.com and pick out a build that is a reasonably priced.  As stated though only you can determine if building a pc is a venture you'd like to try.
