This is what I'd do if I was going to spend around that on a top PC today, based on my own preferences.

CPU: Intel 3930K LGA2011  $600
CPU Cooler: Corsair H80 $95
Mobo: Asus Sabertooth X79 LGA2011 $330
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 32GB (4x8GB) DDR 1600Mhz $300
GPU: MSI TwinFrozr GTX580 $500
HDD: WD Caviar Black 1TB 64mb Cache SATA3 $200
SSD: Crucial 256GB SATA3 $340
Case: Lian Li PC-B10 Mid Tower $230
PSU: Corsair HX850W $175

= $2770 (just used Newegg because it's the easiest place to find things, taking into account higher prices in the EU it would probably be 2.5-3k Euro).

Then $100 for a DVD drive, card reader and wireless card if you need them. I'd also spend $200 on a soundcard if that is what interests you.

To spend more I'd look at another $500 for SLI (or swap it to a GTX590), or another SSD to use as a cache drive.
