I was wondering if there are motherboards that support two i7 Quad core processors (total 8 core support) with 32GB RAM. I was looking for it on the Dell website but could not find it. Any suggestions on how these systems are built?

There are no boards that (officially) support i7 in a dual CPU setup. You need DP-capable Xeons (not UP) to do SMP with more than one physical CPU. These days I think all the Xeons (55xx+) support QuickPath, and if they support QuickPath then they should work in a configuration with more than one physical CPU.
An example Xeon 5500/5600 series workstation board from Intel is the "Intel® Workstation Board S5520SCR"
