What's your budget for this beast? Storage types and amounts? Server chassis or desktop case?

I'm working on a similar machine myself.  If you are on a tight budget (mine is very tight right now) you might want to look at some used equipment on eBay.  I just recently purchased a HP Proliant ML350 G6 for ~$100.  Takes some looking around to find a good price but they are out there.  Mine only came with one Xeon E5520 and 4 GB of DDR3 but so far I was able to add a second E5520 for less than $10 and upgraded to 48GB of RAM for about $65.


Could help you with more specifics if you give us a bit more information.
