Hey guys

Do you reckon this is a good gaming build or light-medium to medium gaming?

http://pcpartpicker.com/parts/partlist/

The reason why the parts are all from amazon is because I live in New Zealand and Amazon ships internationally unlike Newegg or other places. Is there any other build which is better which i could get for around the same price. Also this is the first computer I'm building (I'm 14) and tips/tricks to make it easier and how safe is it?

Yep - all good stuff.

You better double check whether Amazon actually does ship over seas before you get too enthusiastic.

post a link to one of the bits on Amazon.

Um. Are you looking at your own Part Picker list? :p 

The link is to the page where you pick parts, not to any particular build. If you go to the page you have your build on, you'll see a "permalink" on the left hand side near the top. Copy and paste that here so we can give you feedback on your build.

Also, keep in mind that the prices in partpicker are prices from retailers in the U.S. and prices may vary from country to country.

I talked to a guy from NZ yesterday and although amazon might ship there it is going to be crazy expensive. you need to look locally for parts. it will seriously cost more than the parts themselves cost in some cases to ship there

You don't want that build.

This build is $10 over $500, but it destroys the previous build:

It doesn't have an optical drive, but you may not need it depending on how you choose to install Windows (USB installation for example)
