How much do I need to spend for a dual monitor gaming setup?
Resolution - 1440 x 900 (each screen)
Games I will play - Mw2, Fallout 3 etc (most new games ecept crysis)
Notes - I would like the games to look nice, not max, just 'nice'. By this I mean medium settings no aa or af. I was thinking low end cpu, 5850 or 5870, 4gb ram, so around £650/£700
Thanks :)

This isn't something someone can just tell you. Why don't you actually look up the components?

I can tell you that it would be better for multiple monitors to get the HD 5870. I can also tell you that you typically need about 1,000 USD (~675 pounds) to fit that into a build, and that's assuming you can find several good deals.

Yeah, I just wanted a guide on what I should save up ;) , I've been looking around and come up with this:
MSI 790FX-GD70 - £130
AMD Phenom II X3 720 Black Edition - £130
G.Skill Ripjaws 4GB DDR3 - £100
Antec TruePower TP-750 - £90
Antec 300 Illusion - £45
Ati HD5870 - £270
Samsung F3 1TB - £60
Total - £825
