I'll get GTX 670 with processor Core I7-2600K, i worried about that CPU cant use all GPU ability cuz CPU doesn't Support PCIe 3.0, so can that happen?
also if it is Core I7-3770K, can i feel any change referring to support PCIe 3.0?

PCI-E is backwards compatible and is specifically for the motherboard. If your video card is PCI-E 3.0 it will work in a PCI-E 2.0 slot and 1.0 slot.

There are rare issues with 2.1 cards in 1.x slots.

In regards to CPU, anything higher than a i5 2500k or i7 2600k will do good.

that's great,
so for GTX 670 it must has the same result of GTX 680, if i used one Card @ PCIe 2.0 x16 then performance will be 100% & with SLI PCIe 2.0 x8 i'll lose 4% in performance of each card

Probably a little less than 4% because the 670 has bit less raw power than the 680. But overall, you are correct :)
