What's this system going to be used for and what is your budget? If it's gaming you won't notice any performance benefit from going X79 as opposed to Z77. And Cooler Master is not a good choice for PSU as they tend to slap a lot of fake labels and certifications on them.

You're better off getting this combo:

If you're going to be editing video as well then maybe the i7-3770K might be better suited to your needs than the i7-3820 would. The only reason you'd go X79 is if you need the large amounts of RAM being used (and few people do).

Try this build and it will still give you more than enough breathing room to get a nice monitor - get a cheap keyboard and mouse:

Case: Fractal Design Arc MIDI - $99.99
PSU: PC Power & Cooling Silencer MKII 750W - $89.99 ($20.00 MIR)
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H - $149.99
CPU: 3.4GHz Intel Core i7-3770 - $319.99
Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo - $33.99
RAM: 8GB G.Skill Ripjaw 1600MHz 1.5V - $46.99
SSD: 128GB OCZ Vertex 4 - $149.99
HD: 1TB Seagate Barracuda ST - $99.99
Optical: Lite On Bulk DVD Burner - $17.99
Video Card: EVGA Geforce GTX 670 - $399.99
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium - $99.99

Total: $1,508.89

Yes, the Corsair 500R will be able to handle an SLI build pretty easily. The PSU will also be able 2 x gtx 670 with ease.

That looks good except for the GENE-Z - your expansion options will be severely limited, go with the Gigabyte board I mentioned, that will be much better.

Yes, the ability of the i7 called hyperthreading will help you a lot.

Low profile heat spreaders so you don't have any clearance issues with the cpu h/s. 750w psu gives you plenty of headroom while pushing dual 670's in SLI.
