having problem with building workstation

Specs: Windows 7
thanks friend. i have this task of assembling a workstation, and i have been thinking of what model of system motherboard to use, and what intel processor type to use and the type of media card to use

the workstation is going to be used to hold large amount of data, and stores some high resolution media contents including specialized softwares...

the workstation specification is for 32GB RAM, about 32TB disk space....

i have been recommended a gigabyte Z68AP-D3 motherboard.... can this board be efficient for this kind of work? will a single intel core i7 3.4 serves a good amount of speed and data use functions?

i have also been recommended an Nvidia Quadro card... will it serves a gud purpose or are there better ones please?

what other functionalities does the board carries that i need to know that will help me achieve an enhanced usage?

what level of RAID will be better to link the drives together? or are there any other technology i can use to link the drives together efficiently and get better results?

Your description sounds more like the specs for a server. Are multiple users going to access those 32TB of data?

Describe in more detail what the full prupose of this workstation will be. There are many helpers here that work in the IT feild who can help you, once they know those answers.

Why are you designing this workstation? Sounds like a job for a professional in that field.

"Your description sounds more like the specs for a server"

Exactly what I was thinking. And if that's the case, you should be looking at server motherboards & Xeon CPUs. Hopefully you have unlimited funds because this build is going to cost many 1000's of dollars.
