Looks good except a few things:

Pairing a 4670k with a $220 motherboard seems redundant. You aren't going to get anymore overclocking headroom if you spend less. Would look at an ASRock Z87 Extreme4 @ Newegg for $139.99 or a Gigabyte Z87X-D3H for $154.99 @ Newegg.com

Secondly, the PSU is way overkill even for two cards, that could probably power three 770's easily. So for that look at the Rosewill Capstone 550M for $89.99 @ Newegg.com or the Seasonic G Series 550M for $79.99 @ Newegg.com Unless he's going SLI, 550W is more than enough.

Lastly, no need to spend $60 on a cooler when a $40 cooler will be more than enough for the overclocks your friend is probably going to try to achieve. So I would look at the Thermalright True Spirit 120M for $42.89 @ Amazon.com

Also didn't notice an SSD or HD?

Don't bother with haswell in all honesty. It reminds me of the old overclocking days where every single component makes a part of your overclockability and it runs extremely hot.

Save some money, go Ivy Bridge. Get a 3570k and a Sabertooth and call it a day.
