Is this build good?

I wanted to get a m15x referb but everyone said to make a custom desktop. Ive never built my own b4 so im worried about doing it! Do you think a 15 year old can assemble one? Also will this be a really powerful computer? One last thing, im having a tough time picking a video card so please tell me what one to get.
