THERMALTAKE VN300M1W2N CHASER MK-I FULL TOWER BLACK
INTEL CORE I7-4770K 3.50GHZ LGA1150 - BOX overclocked to 4.5ghz
ASUS Z87-DELUXE RETAIL
GEIL GEW316GB2400C11ADC 16GB (2X8GB) DDR3 PC3-19200 2400MHZ EVO VELOCE DUAL CHANNEL KIT
2 SANDISK EXTREME 120GB SSD 2.5'' SATA3
ASUS DRW-24B5ST DVD-RW BLACK RETAIL
and this is my psu OCZ ZX1000W ZX SERIES 1000W
Is my psu enough to supply 2way sli EVGA GeForce GTX760 2GB SuperClocked ACX Cooler(500w each one),
or i should go to one gpu EVGA GeForce GTX770 4GB Classified ACX Cooler(600w)?
the cost is the same

With that set-up, it will be very close...
try a couple PSU calculators, and see what you come up with.
I just did a quick calculation on newegg.com, and it was almost precisely 1000 watts.
You normally want some headroom for PSUs in case of overclocking, and stress testing.

I just said that what you included would be close to 1000 watts.
The 760 is a great card, and paired in SLI, it would last you a great while.
But i would go a bit more with the PSU if that will be your set-up.

You could also get a single card as well, it just depends.
You may not find a single card that can equate to a 760 in SLI in terms of performance, but there are many good choices.

so it's preferred to use a 2 way sli eVGA GeForce GTX760 2GB SuperClocked ACX Cooler insted of a single vga EVGA GeForce GTX770 4GB Classified ACX Cooler.but i have to increase my watt supply.
If my psu remains the same,what kind of problems will i have?

If your system exceeds the rated power of your power supply, the results could be disastrous!
Worst case scenario, the PSU can literally catch fire.
Best case scenario, the PSU will have a hardware failure, and the PSU will simply fail.

Double check all of your hardware with a power supply calculator, and make sure you are within your PSU's limits.
Here is one PSU calculator...
