Is this for gaming?

And if you want to overclock, you are going to need a Z77 or Z75 motherboard.

Its up to you. Overclocking just makes the processor faster, but takes aftermarket cooling and a different motherboard.

If you do not want to overclock, then go for the i5-3470 as well as a H77 motherboard.

16GB of RAM is also unnecessary. Go for 8GB.

You do not need the heatsink if you do not want it. There's nothing against it.
