sump or ready to use filters?

i need help guys.. i just bought a used 100G tank and there's a hole in the bottom, for sump.. to what the seller told me..

what do you think is much more better, make a sump or just buy a use-it-right-away kinda filter, that you don't have to build it.. what do you guys think? performance wise?

thanks in advance..

Much cheaper to build it yourself. It's not that hard either.

Take pride in what you do, for it is a reflection of who you are.
