I would go for a bigger power supply. For example https://pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-power-supply-120g21000xr. You would want more because you may want to upgrade in the future and you usually want ya least double to amout they say you need.

PSU is absolutely fine because he won't be able to add more graphics cards. Suggestions to save money:

i5 instead of i7

If you have money to SLI in future, then go for single 980 instead of 2 970s, overall performance will be much better

Just to be sure, is it just the rig itself or you need peripherals?

Actually if you look at the benchmarks 2xGtx 970s beat a single Gtx 980. WIth that said dual gtx 970's are more expensive

There's also the fact that from his budget, he will definitely be able to upgrade in the future. If 2 970s won't suffice you will be stuck with traditional 970s, but with 980 you can add another one.

You know the 970's have triple sli support?

They do but your motherboard does not.
