I'm new in building pc first timer to be exact..im looking to get the z77 mobo and also considering to setup 3 monitors somewhere in the future so for my first attempt im getting the sapphire 7950 for a single monitor and the question is ,are there enough slots to fit two of the 7950s?

ps: oh..can i get an advise for choosing the power supply for my 1 and 3 monitors setup..i would like anything from corsair

200 watt TDP so you'd need 400w for just your GPU's. Then add headroom, CPU-and if OC, peripherals and fans and cooling.
I'd look at 700w+ bronze or higher 80+ rated PSU's. Modular for nice cable management. :)  SeaSonic, Corsair, Antec, NZXT, CoolerMaster, ThermalTake...etc are trustworthy PSU manufacturers.
Your motherboard has 2 PCIe 3.0 x16 slots. So yes your motherboard supports it, just make sure your Cards take up no more than two slots-because some coolers take 2.5-3.
Also, some good companies make bad products :)  So always read about the card-and not buyer reviews but real reviews.

Recommended PSU:
Modular:
EVGA
Semi:
Corsair
Non:
Thermaltake

for 2 7950 a 700W psu should be enough, 850W to be on the safe side. the mobo should have 2 pci ex 16x slots so yep, it supports 2 of the cards.
