That would be just a dream to have all this money for a dreaming computer but reality is not like that...
So I ask you all if you can help me to have a performing computer for high gaming level but for cheap price????

You don't want a CM GX-series PSU; they're just not good. A 550W Seasonic-built XFX would be sufficient.
You also do not need the sound card, unless you are an audiophile with $500 speakers or a high-end amplifier. Motherboard sound should be sufficient.
I will also echo a common sentiment that very few titles benefit from an i7 over an i5 (and in those that do, the i5 is still quite good enough), so there's another chunk of change you don't need to spend.
The video card is a good choice; not too expensive and can play any game on good settings.

Kurifox, the OP is in Europe, listing prices from a French site. Please feel free to repost a build from relevant shopping sites. Thanks.

Change the CX-600 to the CX-600M. The modular ones use all-Japanese capacitors, but the non-modular ones use inferior Samxon capacitors that do not like heat and are known to fail early. I would not put one in a gamer.
If your prices are at all relative to US prices, replace the inferior Hyper212 EVO with the cheaper Xigmatek Gaia:

Unlike the Hyper212 EVO (ignore the URL; it IS the EVO they tested), the Gaia never throttled, although it wasn't always the coolest depending on the fan used. Both got awards, but if you factor in the price, the Gaia wins hands down.
Hopefully the price difference will cover the PSU change.
Otherwise, looks good.
Edit: Actually, since it isn't an overclocking build, you could use the stock cooler.

That's good too. No additional cooler is needed since it isn't an overclocking build.

Available for purchase? Probably only another year or two. Relevant, and good enough for current games? I'd think at least five to ten years; there are six-plus year old systems out there now with C2D processors that are still able to play modern games.

The "GX" PSUs from CM are not good. Look for XFX, Saasonic, Antec, or FSP.

I'm not sure I'm reading you right, but the Maximus IV Extreme isn't a Socket 1150 board. Did you mean the VI Extreme? The Gigabyte Z68 is also a Socket 1155 board.
For either of those boards, you'd want an i5-3570 or i5-3570K. The "K" chips are unlocked for overclocking. If you get a non-K chip, you won't need an aftermarket cooler.
