What do you guys think of my gaming rig?

Looking at getting 3 monitors, one of them 120Hz Dual link DVI. And surround speakers.

SPECS:

Motherboard: Asus Sabertooth 990FX R2 Gen 3.0
CPU: AMD FX-4130 Quad Core (3.9GHz)
RAM: 2x4GB Corsair Single-Channel DDR3 @ 669MHz
GPU: Radeon HD 7970 GHz edition 3GB GDDR5 RAM (PCI-E 3.0)
PSU: Dark Power Pro 850W 4 rails (cool little overclocking feature on this)
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 7200RPM 1TB
Case: Cooler Master HAF X (Highly recommend cooler master cases)
Keyboard: Cooler Master Quick Fire TK
Mouse: Logitech G400 (right now it's some crappy sweex thing because I'm having some trouble with the post).

I am aware that I don't have much RAM and I will be expanding it as this is a gaming rig on a semi-budget. I will also be upgrading to a SSD when I can afford it.

But yeah, what do you guys think? It was my first build and I had some times when I didn't put the RAM in properly despite having put RAM in before, I was moving my Heatsink about trying to get it on properly and I accidentally pulled up the CPU then put it back down bending a fair few pins. Tweezers are good but if you're tired you're gonna make it worse! Any criticism is welcomed.

Decent specs but can use a little cable management xD
Might also want to get an aftermarket CPU cooler (Coolermaster Hyper 212) cuz that little stock fan is gonna be noisy under full load.
Good job on your first build tho :)

Cheers, I tried cable management, my Dad used to be a telecoms engineer and he didn't see much I could do with it haha. Yeah it is, it's fine at the moment but it can get loud. I'm looking at getting a new HS+F but I'm a little lost in that aspect. I got some Arctic Silver 5 for when I buy it though :)
