- This is for a friend firstly (I'm personally waiting till September). The friend in question refuses to spend less that this amound

A few questions about the PC
- how long should it last against future developments?
- Is it good value for money

Thanks,

Get 2 x GTX770s instead. Crossfire has to many issues. Unless the software he uses favours AMD, which is doubtful.
Powersupply is a bit much. 850W is more than enough.

No one can tell you right now how long it will last, but 3years should be safe, things are changing in gaming, and fast. Personally I believe we are gonna see very few development in gaming tech for a few years. So may last longer.
Value? LOL not really no...

That Sabertooth board is pointless, there are better and cheaper option and the heatshields are actually a bad idea.

Do you think two 770s will clock the same speeds/fps and power for editing as the two 7970's?

Actual speed, yes mostly. But at the moment Crossfire has numerous latency issues in gaming, so its just not worth it above SLI.
It really depends on what program he uses for editing.
