My dad and I built this on July 20th. We made this build specifically for gaming. It took us a while considering that this was our first time trying to build a PC. It took around 4-5 hours just trying to figure everything out. As odd as it sounds, we spent the most time on the CPU cooler. We could not get it to stay in the motherboard to save our lives. A good hour and a half was spent just trying to keep the CPU cooler in place. Overall, it was a good and fun experience. And since this is our first build, the cable management isn't good. At all. There are cables all over the place, but we made sure to keep it out of the way of fans and whatnot.
