Should I buy a pre-made gaming computer from IBuyPower or another company like it or should I just build it myself?

Systems Forum - www.tomshardware.co.uk
So before I say anying else, I'm not tech savy what so ever and if I end up getting the parts I will most likely be having someone else build it for me. Knowing that, I am wondering which one would be a better deal, buying a PC pre-made or build it myself? I will probably be buying the computer in the upcoming holiday season as there will probably be very good deals. I realize that people have very mixed opinions about buying pre-built PC's and I know the risks about buying them. I do not however know all the risks of building it myself besides having no support, the chance of the parts not working, and broken parts. I know there are some guides on this site on how to build a computer and people say it's very easy but it looks so complicated. I guess the big question is if the fact that you can get a PC with better specs and you can save money compared with buying a pre-made one is worth the risks of screwing up the computer and potentialy not getting your money back for the broken parts? So community, is it worth it? What're the main differences? What have your experiences been like when buying a pre-made? Also, If you recommend me to get a pre-made what site is the best for it? Thank you!
