Z77X-UD3H - Dual GTX 670s - Not sure about SLI

I know I can SLI with my Gigabyte GA Z77X-UD3H (I read this) but need some things cleared up. Mobo image here:
If I was to put two Gainward 670s in the PCI-Ex16 and x8 slots there would be a gap in the middle. Is this a problem when SLI-ing?
Since the second 670 will use up the slot for my wireless network card I will have to use a PCI-Ex1 wireless network card. Will it fit into that gap?

No problem the SLI bridge you got with the board should reach the gap. The network adapter can either go in the top PCIe X1 slot or the lower one in the gap. Presuming the Gainward is a dual slot card.

The gap that would end up between the two 670s is not a problem. In fact is is usually considered good because it lets the cards run cooler. The gap is especially useful if the cards have a non-blower style cooler, as the gap allows the cards to breathe.

A PCIe x1 wireless card should fit, but I would personally place it in the top PCIe x1 slot if it is not already occupied.

Yes its dual slot and thank you!

I forgot to ask- is a 650 Watt PSU enough for dual 670s?
