This is my very first build that I have done, and when I built it, I had in mind for it to do a lot of gaming, and it did it's job very well. GTA on High-Ultra settings produced a smooth 60fps, but running the benchmark brought the 960 up to 60 degrees Celsius, and the CPU to 75, however, the amount of fans I have in the system cools it down very quickly, and I hardly ever see the fans on the 960 spinning. This is not a failure, it just means the 960 is not hot enough for it to have a need to have the fans turned on. If there is anyway I could have done this better, or if there is a suggestion of how I could upgrade it, please let me know!
Also, yes. I know my cable management could use a bit of work. I'm just not sure if I want to try and replug things, since it was a hassle getting things right way in, in the first place.

Great CPU for those doing their first build.
Great Motherboard for those who are doing their first build, however another motherboard might be better if you plan to do SLI.
What can I say? The RAM does it's job, and does it well.
Allows for a storage for a lot of things, and works quite efficiently.
Great graphics card for those who are doing their first build, and need enough power, but not too much. This graphics card definitely packs a punch and lets you play things very well with the right amount of RAM and good processor.
Nice looking case, but sometimes can feel a bit cheap, especially with the power and reset buttons.
If you aren't sure if Windows 10 is right for you just yet, Windows 8.1 is definitely the way to go. Not only does it work great with all of your games, if you add a Classic Start Menu you are on your way to the perfect gaming solution.
