    Hi Dave
    if you are only displaying the instruments on the 4 monitors you can get away with as little as a duo core 2600 and 2 low level graphics cards (PCI express?) but if it's the outside views then I7 and high end graphics cards. Buy the fastest you can afford or even a second hand or factory refurbed unit, the hard disk is about the only wearing part
    regards
