Looks capable.

Why no SSD? Most folk today get SSD to not have the usual delays.

Nothing looked bad.

I like the single rail PSU, the good size case but today I don't start with the HDD since SSD is night and day performance difference. In fact the last few machines have been all SSD with some 240 or more GB C drive with a data drive.

SSD would take your PC from being run of the mill to awesome.

Bin that hdd and at least move up to a 7200 rpm unit.
Better yet bin the hdd and move up to a ssd.
A 500GB ssd will be much/much faster and unless you want to store a boat load of games should have ample space.

Cpu....bin that I7, not many games will take advantage of 8 cores.
Fit an I5 7600k and save a $100, put it toward the ssd.

Ram...make sure you fit the sticks in the proper mobo slots to enable dual channel.
