If this is just for gaming then I suggest getting the 3570k instead.

If you don't plan on overclocking then there is no point in buying a very expensive board with the same basic functions of cheaper boards.

If this is only meant for gaming, then 16 and 32GB of RAM is absolutely pointless. 8GB is mighty plenty and will be for a while. No game can access anymore than 3GB of RAM.

1000w is completely overkill unless you had dual 690s. A single 660ti only requires a 450w PSU. You would be fine with a 650w PSU. On that note, get a Corsair PSU instead. Better quality.

A 660ti will max your games, but with the savings alone on the board and chip you can get a 670 instead.

Newegg is excellent. I recommend anybody to shop their for PC components.

The memory is also for video editing and stuff like that so that why i need so much RAM.
Thanks for the suggested CPU and PSU i'll look into that.

Also, what motherboard would you suggest?

Ah well knowing that you will be editing helps. Normally when somebody puts gaming computer in the title one is to assume

32GB is still way too much IMO. I video edit as well and I can only see 16GB being fathomable unless you put all of your work in RAMDisk or something.
