No reason to pick the most expensive CPU possible, the six-core 2.66Ghz Xeon X5650 should come it at $1000 flat.

I don't know why you pick the higher Xeon.... this is an overclocking board, so why not take the cheaper one (like the E5502) and overclock it.

The E5502 is a dual-core without Hyper-Threading, it would be a huge waste of money.

I'm thinking of upgrading to this board with a pair of Xeons. Might do a build review.

Are they for sale anywhere?

The board has been delayed. It's not available yet and EVGA hasn't announced a real release target.
