reefledlights.com DIY for 40g breeder

I really want to build an LED fixture myself even if the price is high I know it will be worth it. Currently I'm setting up a 40 gallon breeder and I think in the long run I'd like to be able to have some sps if I want. I've found a couple sites that are fairly similar such as: reefledlights.com, and rapidled.com.
If anyone has any experience with LEDs and building their own fixture please feel free to help me with this. Currently I'm looking at this from reffledlights.com:

24 CREE XP-E Kit
Premium 16 Xp-E RB/ 8 XP-E CW
18" Heatsink
Drivers- 2 inventronics Dimmable
Optics- LEDLink 80 Degree
Fan Kit- 2 CoolTron Fans w Powersupply

PLEASE feel free to modify this list and tell me anything I'm missing. Is this a good number of LEDs?
