Will you get a better deal by piecing it together yourself? Probably.
What I mean is that they are not offering that kit as a public service, out of pure altruism and benevolence. It's a product that they sell, and they are going to make a profit off of it.
You are paying for the convenience of one-stop-shopping by buying the kit.
So... is it worh it? It depends on how much they marked it up, and how much you value your time. If you can piece it together yourself for $40 less, but it takes you 10 hours of scouring the internet to do it... is your time worth $4/hour?
