Well, without an application list, and trying to cover all bases, I'd use an i7-3770k (hyperthreading) in a nce overclocking MoBo (i.e. Asus Sabertooth Z77), w/ minimum of 16 GB (preferably 32 GB) of RAM, nVidia GFX (CUDA), Tier 1 SSD (i.e Mushkin Chronos Deluxe) and Seagate Barracuda XT's for file storage and a nice big CPU cooler (i.e Phanteks) for big OC.

nVidia crippled Kepler's GPGPU support, so go for Fermi or a Quadro. On the other hand, GCN (HD7xxx) is very powerful if you don't need CUDA.

I do heaps of Solidworks and 3D designs. Check out my build info.

If you more into video encoding, then you should invest in a better graphics card.

This all depends on you budget. Mine was ~1700. If you can spend more, then Xeons and Quadros make a lot of sense.
