I need a new gaming PC and want to keep my options open with 3 options: picking parts then have someone build it for me, buy a pre built PC or buy all the parts and build it myself.

All pre-built computers are a rip off. Find someone local, ask them to help you decide on parts. Before hand, look online at component prices so you don't get ripped off.

Or just build on yourself, it's not hard, there's thousands of guides.
All you need is:
Case
Power Supply
Cooling system (fans to liquid, sky's the limit)
Motherboard
CPU
RAM
Bootable Storage Device (HDD or SSD)
GPU (You might not have to buy one. They can be a separate card, or a chip on the motherboard or included in the CPU as an APU or IGU)

Optional: some sort of optical drive for reading cd/dvd/Blu-ray.

Things can only go one way, and most have instructions.
Bring back v12!

Local PC repair shops should be able to help me build a PC if I bring them all the parts? How much does this service usually cost?

Between that and googling best builds under (whatever your budget is). And then roll your own.
I can be patient, but I'm not waiting!
