Nice. But the Intel motherboard you've linked will only work with LGA1366 Xeon 5500 and 5600 series CPU's. And they are very expensive. Also you need double the RAM sticks, un-buffered(if overclocking) or registered ECC(for workstation tasks) sticks.

What are you going to do on these machines?

I'd wait a bit. AMD and Nvidia are both about to release some bad-arse GPU's that will top the ones you've got there.
