i5 760, 6GB DDR3, GTX 580/GTX 480 or maybe a Quadro? A good PSU brand like Antec or Corsair >650W, a good P55 mobo and a case with excellent airflow/cooler.
Also check the new sandy-bridge CPU's and mobos.

I've read often that gaming cards, while able to do a decent job if they're powerful enough, are best avoided if you are serious about 3D work. A Quadro would be ideal but they're veeeery expensive. But the best CPU you can afford would be good as that's what renders.
