2500k would work great. Though, if you haven't got it yet, you should pick up i5-3570k instead, as it's around 5% faster and costs the same.

Of course, if you already have the 2500k, it will work just fine without any bottlenecks whatsoever.

And I'd advice at least 700 watt power supply unit with 4 6-pin PCIe connectors. Get a quality unit from either Corsair, Antec, Seasonic or XFX.

I would sell 670 and get 680 instead of SLI...if you have the cash go for 690.
2500K would do great plus I'm sure you are pushing it at 4Ghz anyway, right?

680 is barely better than a 670. A 690 is two 680's on one PCB

Sweet goodness don't sell the 670! SLI 670's are a great setup. You might want to think about 750 watt or even a bit larger if you want to do any OC'ing.
