Default Home server bulid

Im planning on buliding a home server bulid with gaming/3D app muscle.
I live in europe and pricing is US$=€. Budget is 1500€. Needing some advice for components. I have monitor, mouse , keyboard etc. ready. Planning on mild overclock for performance increase (Max 3.0 Ghz). Planning to bulid in october. Nvidia is screaming with its CUDA stuff is it worth it? This is a server bulid that uses sensitive data so I want ECC memory.

mobo: Asus P6T7 WS SuperComputer (449€)
CPU: Intel Xeon W3520 (264€) (Is this a i7 920 with ECC support)
CPU cooling: CoolIT Domino A.L.C (89€)
RAM: 2X Kingston Value RAM DDR3 ECC 1066MHz CL7 6Gt Kit (228€)
RAM Cooler: OCZ XTC Cooler (22€)
GPU: Two Asus HD 4770īs (CrossFireX) (190€)
HDD: Samsung SpinPoint F1 320Gt (47€) (more afterwards... RAID 0+1 array perhaps.)
PSU: Cooler Master UCP 700W (126€)
Case: Acase Monolize (115€)
