Don't think I would touch that power supply. What kind of budget are you working with here?

Also if you're going Z77 go with the i5-3570K, if you're going Z68, stick with the 2500K.

How big a power supply do you think I would need for 2 of the 6870's and im going with the 2500k so what board would you you recommend around the same price range as the asrock z77?

Welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums,
All of the parts you show are compatible but you have a weak link in your build - the PSU. I can find no objective reviews on any Powercool PSU, I found a few threads saying they had problems but nothing real good. I will personally suggest you steer clear of any PSU which has not been reviewed - see this list

shows where to find reviews for PSU's (by maker)
Also you might spend some time reading this about PSU's.

Happy reading, enjoy your build (with different PSU)

May go with your option but I would like to future proof this PC and make sure I have nothing to worry about when installing more power hungry parts.

Also living in the UK there is only a £1 pound difference between the one I suggested and the one you did :/

Power hungry parts are becoming a thing of the past. The new generation of GPUs are far more energy efficient than previous generations so the days of 1K+ power supplies are coming to an end. A 950W will handle 3 x SLI for the GTX 670 easily.

Yes, and the 750M is semi-modular the other isn't.
