2 EPS12V 8-pin connectors

where do I buy a PSU that has this? I can't find one on newegg, and I've already asked here and I got one reply, which, even though it was helpful, did not fully answer my question. Someone please help me....

for reference, this is what I'm trying to do:

    CPU -> +$40x2 = $80 more
    Mobo -> +$55
    RAM -> Depends on how much memory you want - Assuming 12GB would suffice for now -> -$240

    So you get a Dual Xeon 5520 with 12GB of RAM in Tri-Channel for less...
    The only downside is that the Xeon system has 4GB less memory...But roughly saving about $110...
    But its your call though...
