Need some advice on first PC Build (dual 12-core Xeon + quad GTX Titans)

I've got this list of components so far that I'm happy with, but I'm not sure what other components I have to buy to be able to build this thing. The idea is to get two 12-core Xeons and four GTX Titans, although for budget reasons I will start with getting one of each, then add later as I have more to spend:

* = Only buy 1 first, then add additional ones later in the future as I get more dough.

1 x Corsair Obsidian Series 900D Case/Tower

1 x EVGA SuperNOVA NEX 1500W Power Supply

1 x ASUS Z9PE-D8 WS Motherboard

*2 x Intel Xeon E5-2697 v2 2.7GHz 12-Core CPU

*4 x EVGA GeForce GTX TITAN SuperClocked 6GB SLI Ready

*4 x Crucial 32GB Kit (16GBx2), DDR3 1600MHz ECC RAM

For starter I'm gonna use my current Vertex SSD, and later buy 2 x SAMSUNG 840 Pro 512GB SSD for RAID-0.

Any advice is much appreciated!
