You're going about it half-backwards. You pick the motherboard BEFORE the RAM, not all boards support all RAM.

Currently (and I don't believe ever) there are no dual i7 boards. The processor does not support a dual configuration. You need a pair of Xeons and a server board for that. Right now, the only LGA1366 Xeons supported in a dual processor configuration are the 5500 and 5600 series processors.

Repeat...........consumer Core i7 processors WILL NOT run in a dual processor board.

Dual cpu boards are for servers and aren't designed for overclocking. Get a regular board with the fastest core i7 you can afford. Microcenter had the 930 for $199 recently. I use the lowly i3 530 and it's plenty fast. Very impressive for $100 plus a free board from frys.

That one? Xeon only.

CPU support list here:

No i7's. As I said, the i7 does NOT support dual processor configurations. As to whether somebody tweaked things to get a pair working, I can't comment, but it's not something I'd mess with, especially with a pair of $1000 processors. Aside from that, nothing outside of a server environment natively uses dual CPU's, there's zero point to doing that for a gaming rig in the first place. If you're wanting the speed and reliable performance out of a dual proc setup, stick with what's supported.

In more detail there was a Intel D5400XS skulltrail but it never ran two i7's. Guy is full of crap. The only CPU designed for it was a Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9775 LGA771 CPU BX80574QX9775, 3.20 GHz, 1600FSB, 12MB L2 Cache, 45nm. It didn't last long on the market because it was not cost effective and the i7 1366 was around the corner. I think the board and two CPUs would put you back around $3700.

If your looking two spend that kind of money a Intel Core i7-980X Extreme Edition Gulftown 3.33GHz 6 x 256KB L2 Cache 12MB L3 Cache LGA 1366 130W Six-Core Desktop Processor, a good 1366 board, and 12GB of ram is cheaper than the above. That's even if you could find the above components.
