  1. Consider getting an AM3 motherboard with onboard 4200 or 3300 video, an Athlon IIx4 620 CPU, 4GB (2x2GB kit) of DDR3-1333 RAM and window7 64 (unless your software wont run on windows 7). You should be able to run 2 monitors off of the onboard video and you can use the best of you PCI graphics cards to run two more monitors.
  2. FYI, you should look at the How to Ask for New Build Advice thread , and edit your post with that format. That way, people have a clear idea of what, exactly, you already have, and will help them give you specific advice.
