In summary, some of the desktops on the market (from the major brands) have hardware components significantly discounted vs. the retail price you would pay to assemble yourself... the biggest challenge is uninstalling bloat ware at start up.

The discount is not that significant.  Sometimes the reduction in quality is.  The premium to DIY for good quality parts might be 10%.  It may be worth it if you can't find an acceptable build by someone else - the boutiques will, but now you're paying a substantial premium.

The Microsoft tax, otoh, is much greater - $120-130 for the Pro OEM license.  And time, of course.
