Looking at prices right now on Amazon and other retailers for the Starter build at $699, you'd be looking to spend around $600 or more on ordering all the parts yourself, and that's not including a license for Windows. What's more is if you don't feel comfortable putting everything together, the small additional price is a great way to save on stress and prevent any mishaps.
