Im NOT SURE if my Gigabyte 720w PSU can handle these cards along with my full pc components. Here is my full system specs.

CPU : I7 4770k OC to 4.2Ghz @ 1.17v
MBoard : Gigabyte Z87X-D3H
RAM : 2x8GB Kinston 1600Mhz
SSD : 1 HyperX 120GB
HDD : 3 x 2TB Seagate Baracuda
ODD : 1 HP DVD/r/w 24x
Accessories : 1 Scyhe Multi Fan Controller Pro, 1 5.25 Front Panel Card Reader
Case Fans : 8 x 120mm CM Jetflow High-performance

Do i have to change my PSU as well or it can handle my SLI upgrade. Never done any SLI setup before.

Thanks in advance. Any response/help will be much appreciated.

A quality 700-750w psu should be enough for SLI GTX 760 and overclocking.
However, Gigabyte does not make the best psu, in fact I didn't even know they made psus.
I would advise a better brand psu for the SLI. A quality 750w from Corsair (Non-CX series), Seasonic, XFX, or Antec is recommended.
