Here is a link to the computer, http://www.cyberpowerpc.com/system/Gamer_Xtreme_1000_SE
Also here is a link to PCPartPicker. The parts arent exactly the same but I tried to get it close.

The only thing that really needs changing is the PSU, as the Thermaltake TR2 series is patchy at best.

The "850 Watts - Corsair CMPSU-850TXV2 80 Plus Power Supply - Quad SLI Ready" is the next cheapest one that I would recommend.

You could get the "850 Watts - Cooler Master Silent Pro Gaming 80 Plus Power Supply" if you really want/need a modular PSU.

Okay, also I learned the 7970 is 925MHz and not the 1000GHz. Is that fine? Also they wont tell me the brand of the card.... Is the mother board okay? and the PSU you suggested fine for overclocking?

AFAIK the 1000MHz 7970 hasn't been released yet. Yes the 925MHz version of the 7970 is fine. It's a good card.

Yes the motherboard is a good choice. You would need to change it if you want the option to crossfire in the future.
Asus P8Z77-V LK or the Gigabyte GA-Z77X-D3H.

Yes the PSU is good for overclocking.
