How much are you gonna spend

First of 10+ years is inconceivable considering Eatx seems to be where things are heading and the increasingly faster improvements in technology.

For your build, you don't need such a big psu I would say 950 watts maximum and it seems the release of the GTX 960, which may interest you, in January is going to be even more economical so things look to be heading for less power.

For that price range I eoul get an enthoo pro case but that's me and also you are spending 5x more on your gpus then cpu which is considerably more

Yeah. Go for the 8350 CPU at least. 8 cores and a lot of room for Overclocking. You could get 4.7 out of it. As that's what the 9xxx CPUs are, just overclocked 8350s.
