Next Gen PC Gaming Rig Questions...

I've always had a struggle choosing between consoles and PC gaming. For some reason something that can go wrong with a PC, seems to go wrong for me... But after looking at specs for NextGen consoles and seeing the capabilities of what computers are capable now, I've decided to take the plunge back into strictly PC gaming, which means I get to buy an expensive new toy .
Anyways, my question:
I want to build a PC for biggest bang for buck, i'd say my budget (going to be a pretty big window) is 1-2k. I'm looking for something that is going to be able to crush, or at least out perform next gen gaming consoles, hopefully long in to their life.
-I don't know exactly how I feel about dual graphics cards, i've heard the extra boost you get isn't worth the expensive costs to get it running, but that's why I'm asking you guys. It's been about 8 years since i've built my own PC so my knowledge is very, very outdated.
-Is it worth waiting till a certain time to make my purchase (has the new hardware come out, is it coming out soon, etc)
