Okay so basically I need a powerful gaming rig which can play any current game as well as upcoming games like Star Citizen but I've never built a gaming PC before so I need some help in finding the parts I need.
Pretty simply I need the most powerful rig I can get for 1000 bucks, please be specific about the parts and where I can get them because I'm new to custom builds.

Also should note that this will be a pure gaming rig, I literally won't be using it for anything other than games.

A pc like that can be about a lot of things,like
crossfire/sli for the future.Do you want that option?
or do you want a ssd for your o.s. and standard programs?
You also really should look for a case yourself

For starters the next system,

Maybe try again?

That new one is 700watt for a 4670K which you can overclock plus 2x7970,i think that it's a bit low and another thing is that it only has one pcie 6pin and one pcie 8pin (6+2) while you need two of each for crossfire.
From the 700watts there are only 552watts for the 12Voltrail,i really do think that's too low.
