Yes, no problem. The max gpu length for the K350 is 12.4 inches, the Asus GTX 780 DirectCU II is 11.3 inches.

As far as length, yes. I looked at pictures of the interior, and the room for the gpus is the same for all slots. There's no partial or removable hdd cage to provide extra room for some but not all of the expansion slots.

However, I just noticed that the max cpu cooler height is listed as "148.5mm / 5.8 inch" (reference link) and the video card you're considering is also 5.8 inches high, so you might be cutting it close in that dimension, and even if it does fit, that'll exclude the possibility of a side fan.

Also, you need excellent case airflow to handle a single video card that exhausts the hot air into the case rather than out the back, even more so for two of them, and now I'm not so sure the K350 will be good enough in that regard.

On a third note, given that you're getting a Z87 chipset motherboard, you might also be planning to OC the cpu. What cpu cooler were you planning to get? The popular Hyper 212 EVO is 159mm tall, so it won't fit in that case.

A Corsair hydro series cooler? Well, two things to keep in mind there: 1. that case only has room for at most a 120x120mm radiator (and I'm not even 100% sure one will fit), not 140x140 or 240x120. 2. You'll probably need to do something to make sure the backplate fits tightly, such as adding washers or flipping the backplate and reinserting the bolts (credit to AzisTroyanov for the second method).
