I have £615 available to buy parts from any reliable UK site.
I want to game with my brother using just the one PC.
I need to buy one monitor and a keyboard and mouse as well as all the other components. I don't need a DVD drive, i don't need any OS.
I also have a couple of questions:

1. Would it be better to have an FX 6300 or an 8320 for multi seat gaming - i know they are basically the same except for the extra cores.

2. One graphics card or two - i could get one HD 7950 3GB or two graphics cards. Which is better for multi-seat gaming?

3. Whats the best motherboard (taking into account the above) for about £115?

Thank you.

What games are you planning on playing?

Personally I've never seen or heard of having multiple people gaming on a single desktop PC, at least not on two separate games with separate monitors and keyboards.

As far as I know there isn't a way within windows to assign one keyboard/mouse/monitor as one "group" and a second keyboard/mouse/monitor as another group and having it keep the input/output separate between the two. I suppose it could be doable if using a hypervisor/virtual machines, but I don't know how well the GPU would handle two different 3d games at once.
