Hello all. I'm seeking to build a performance PC. Looking for some advice on selecting components:

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Within the next month

BUDGET RANGE: ~$5,000

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Running the most amount of calculations as fast as possible

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Any type of permanant storage. I will be running the operating system live in the RAM.

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Cheapest in US

COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: US

PARTS PREFERENCES: Dosen't Matter

OVERCLOCKING: Maybe

SLI OR CROSSFIRE: NO

MONITOR RESOLUTION: Does not matter the OS I will be running will not have a GUI

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I will be running a custom Linux Build entirely in the RAM. I am looking to build an extreamly fast system however graphics, sound, and storage are not important. Also I need the ability to connect two components via Conventional PCI interface. Thanks for the anticipated help,

Forgot to add: I need the system for fit into a standard computer tower case. No atypical enclosures. Needs to kinda look like a run of the mill computer when shutoff.

Well what type of calculations ? Does it take advantage of multi-cores ?
Here is a setup...
2x Xeon E5620

Mobo -
SUPERMICRO MBD-X8DTi-LN4F-O Dual LGA 1366 Intel 5520

RAM - Not sure how much you need, so either 2x http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
The above mobo will recognize 8GB ECC registered stick...
or

CASE -

PSU - A very high quality one and very silent and has 2 x 8-Pin EPS 12V for the mobo...
