I want to get a new pc, but i'm not sure about building it (which is cheaper , but I won't be able to buy extra warranty)  or buying one (which is more expensive , but i can buy extra warranty ) .I want to choose between this one :

and this one :

If they can run Skyrim on Ultra and GTA 5 on med or high, it will be enough for me . :)

I can build one for you if you are worried about messing up. And also, most parts come with a 3 year or longer warranty. Both of those rigs could not run GTA5 on high, or Skyrim on Ultra.

The overall price fits in my budget, but i don't know the costs of shipping to a country in europe.

IMO try to get an Intel chip with a K, it allows for future over clocking.  Intel chips are stronger at gaming.
