First PC build at $900. What do y'all think?

This is the first build I've ever made and I plan to buy after seeing what Cyber Monday deals are like. I plan to play games on it and would hope that it lasts me a while till I have to switch out any of the parts. Is there anything I can skimp on or anything I'm missing?
