Yes, the psu has a single rail 65A which can draw about ~780w, you have 4 pcie pins for the gpus, and two 670 will draw maximum load with the rest of the components about ~650w.
There will be no bottleneck or throttling, your psu can even handle more than 800w see review here :

The biggest bottleneck will be your hard drive(s). For that build not getting a SSD is silly.

Uh i just realised that the Asus P8Z77 V LX has only one PCI Express 3.0 x16 and four 2.0-s , so is it even possible to do SLI with those cards on the board ?

No because that's a Crossfire board.

Just swap the motherboard for a ASUS P8Z77-V LK

It's at the same price, comes with SLI support, two pcie 3.0 slots (dual x8 x8)


Or ASRock Z77 Extreme3, it has the same features of the asus one and it's cheaper.
