Help on building workstation

Hello guys,
I am on the process of building a workstation for my graphics workload. I'll be doing rendering in 3dsmax maya and also some serious simulations in fumefx realflow. etc. I want some advice on what processor to purchase. What I am currently thinking of is buying an new core i7 930 12 GB RAM and a GTX 480. for the rendering and simulation

I would be using a 4 * xeon 5520 on a single mobo
(Intel Quad Xeon SE8500HW4 Server Motherboard

will that be able to satisfy my heavy workload. will using 4 xeon increase my total CPU power in rendering and simulations. I would like to use the 2 systems in LAN and use network rendering and simulation. will that be possible or am I missing something
