The workstation hardware benchmarked in our recent paper  is quite
decent. You should also browse the past discussions on the list.
For best performance in a desktop setup a Haswell-E CPU (i7 4960X or 4930)
and a GTX 980/980 Ti is the best bet, for something mid-range I'd go with a
high-clocked Core i5 CPU and a GTX 970 or 960.
