Yours isn't even possible. You can't run 4 GTX590s, only two.

Mine would be something similar. 1 of the fastest SSDs (no raid) with a bunch of 3TB drives attached. Might go 990 or way OC'd 2600k. Max out the ram. Run 2 6990s or a 3way CF/SLI setup. GIANT projectors on the walls for my three screens, hooked up to a home theater 7.1 system. $350? More like $3500 just for the speakers. All in a special room with no windows and sound padding.
 
I've got it now... Mostly

i7-2600k OC'd to 4.4
8GB 1866 ram
Need SSD
Need dual 6990's Crossfire
Gigabyte Mobo
Antec 600 case
Corsair H series liquid cooler
Dual 24" 1080 monitors, tried 3 monitor... 5' of monitor was a bit much
 
at the moment-
a 2600k@4 ghz
maximus iv xtreme
megahalems with coolermaster sickflows in pull push
corsair dominator 8 gb RAM
a crucial m4 128 gb and 2 WD blacks in RAID 0
coolermaster silent pro 1000w 80+ gold
thermaltake armor+ full tower
a msi lightning extreme gtx 580 3 gb
27 inch asus LED monitor
Razor mouse and keyboard.
corsair gaming series audio
and some other peripherals......

and

I dont know people askin for 32,48 GB of ram, Do you know what is the ram for?.
You will need that amount and more ram if yo are planning to mount a web or database server for thousands of people.
So, if your planning to play games (no matter wich), programming , internet browsing, music; everything at the same time, you wont need more tha 6-8 GB (+ windows 7, antivirus, firewall, torrents, ares, etc.).
You are right on the 10 TB of SSD (in Raid 0), with that everything should be as fast as a mouse click.
 
i dont think that it is possible to copy a large amount say 100 gb in "a mouse click"
yeah you see my build(posted above you)i have only 8 gb and it destroys any game.
no one needs 32 or 48 gb unless they "eat" RAM at a rate of 1 mb/day

Don't really know the price because I didn't have a budget or time frame , I just kept adding and customzing. So far it's been worked on for 2-3 months. I am using it while I'm working on it. My guess would be around $8000.
