Looks like a few hundred dollars (USD) less if you build yourself. I'm not sure what's available to you but this is as close as I could get. Case is up to you but I went ahead and added the NZXT S340. If you want to price match, you could get a better CPU and an SSD. I'll build that one below as well.

Here's the most comparable build.

Here's the price matched build.

For the same cost, you can get a much better CPU, motherboard, psu and faster RAM and a 500GB SSD. This would blow that Predator away.

Well, it still looks to be a couple hundred less if you do it yourself. USD. You still get a 500GB SSD and faster RAM. If you were to take out the SSD and match the RAM, you'd easily be about $500 less than the prebuilt. I will always recommend building your own over pre-built.
