I will primarily be using the PC for gaming and videos.
Would it be worth it to spend $900 on a pc or would a $700 pc last the same amount of time?

That looks pretty good to me, I can't find any faults with that build.

No a 700 PC would be pretty shitty compared to your build now stick with it

You COULD drop down to a 7870 and Overclock it. They overclock very well and can perform better than a stock 7950, for ~$60 less.

Other than that I like your build.

Nah, I wouldn't sacrifice that 3GB of 384-bit memory. Plus you can overclock the 7950 to surpass the HD 7970, so the question comes back to budget. Also, Techreport.com shows a significantly smoother experience on the 7950 over the 7870.
