For having a true SATA III 6Gbps capability and speeds when building a new system, what hardware features do I need to look for when selecting the motherboard, processor, chipset, HDD and RAM? What and where are the bottlenecks ?

If you are expecting a single hard drive to provide 6Gbps speed then forget it.. Not even the fastest single SSD in the market can reach such speeds.. You need to look into RAID 0 solutions to get good performance.. Keep in mind though that it again comes with its own limitations (increased power draw, decreased reliability leading to data loss chances etc.)..

Right now only some SSDs (Corsair C300/m4, Intel 510, OCZ Vertex 3 and some other "3rd generation" SSDs) benefit from SATA 3, but they don't max it; some get somehow close however with read transfer speeds of over 500MB/s (>5Gbps).
