I don't like building them myself because then warranty wise you have to deal with the individual components' manufacturers rather then just ringing up HP or Dell or whoever.
Ringing up H-P was one of the reasons I decided to go the self build route. Obviously I'm in the minority here, but I never found it that hard and I'm not a IT specialist or any other kind of computer professional.
Just my two cents input, for what it's worth Good to hear all POV.
