Thanks ct1615.
How much Power will the rest of the system fetch?

You can always use a power supply calculator. It can give you a general idea of how much juice you will need.

It's always good to leave yourself some room. Sometimes PSU's don't output what they advertise, and over time PSU's can lose some of their wattage. Plus you might want to overclock that i5-2500k in the future, or add more components.

guru recommends a 700w PSU. they pulled a similar 293w as techpowerup for the cards and had 433w for total system. you have 48a on your 12v rail so it has very good 12v power. like i said it will work and if you plan to replace the PSU after a year, it should be OK. Personally I would want a 650-750w PSU with 53a+ on the 12v but that is my preference and you already own the PSU.

Plz tell me where the rest of the 300W will go i am a noob so plz don't mind.
Why then it is sli certified for the sake of branding i think the card consumption is low even at peak as compared to previous generation cards then how it got certified?
Or it is certified for only mid range cards.

Thanks dude for timely help. After a year i will change it to Silent Pro Gold 1200W or AX1200W then it will be future proof. :)

certified is more of a marketing term. while the PSU meets nvidia (or AMD with crossfire) standards for SLI (more then one PCI-E connector) you really can't tell what specific cards it can power without doing a bit of homework on independent review sites like techpowerup, techspot, anandtech, guru3d, etc.,

hey! how the cm gold 600W psu?? I am planning to buy it to can it xfire 7970 I wonder the max output of psu is 720W what does that mean? the psu is rated @ 600W so will it harm psu in long run to run it at 700W or 650W?

No. Don't even try that. Buy one 800W or more that will help you in the long run.
