Will the parts make a good gaming computer?
I'm planning on making a gaming computer, I will also do work on it but not very much. I was wondering if these parts would make a good gaming PC. I will also be making YouTube videos on it. My budget is around $1500. If you think I should change anything please tell me what I should change and tell me what a good one would be.

Sounds like a very good build to me! Although you could do a similar (performance wise) build by just 1000 dollars, yours sounds like a beast. About that liquid cooler I would go for something a bit «more expensive» because the deal with water coolers is that or you pay 100+ or you have an increased risk of a leak that could ruin your entire system, but no worries about yours, it will do just fine! I like that you added a 750 Watts PSU, cause although a 600w would be just fine, a 750w will provide you sufficient room to maybe OC (having you chose the K CPU version I'm sure you want to get around with doing that).
You can save a bit on these areas if you want:
CPU (if you do not plan OC'ing)
Motherboard (although yours is just fine, for what you intend to do you can save a couple of bucks)
SSD (not needed, but as you plan to render and edit videos it is a nice pick (it will save you like a max of 20 mins/2 hours video in comparison with a non SSD system))
HDD (let's face it: a 1TB would do just fine )
PSU (but I do not recommend if you plan on OC'ing/future SLI'ing)
Cooler (if you do not want to OC, go for a regular fan one, if you do want, spend a couple of bucks in a better one)
Hope I helped!
P.S. The final decision is all about you, if you think you're happy with your current system, go ahead and buy it! It will have no problems! My suggestions, as it says, are mere suggestions. You'll have like a solid 70-80 fps on BF4 ultra and 300+ in minecraft ultra (if that exists xD). Count with very good performance in games like Metro and Bioshock Infinite! A 2 Monitor gaming set would also be sweet in the future, and your GPU will be very good for it.
If you could wait to have 2000 $ you would get away with a GTX 780 or even the ti version (best single core GPU on the market).
