You assemble a kit into a PC; you build a PC of choice configuration from the parts as needed.
So, decide if you want it a la mode or a la carte.
Assemble is the verb you need to use, as you are putting together all the parts. All PC companies, and even the ones who custom-make them, use the word assemble.It is the accepted industry term.
Assemble: fit together the separate component parts of (a machine or other object). "my new machine is being assembled and my old one dismantled"
