Default GFX card for dual WUXGA monitors

For my new build, I decided to go with dual 28" WUXGA monitors (yeah, I know, very excessive.) but now i am running into the problem of a decent Gfx card that can run them. This is what I am thinking right now.

I am also considering a HD 4850 or 4870, but I am unsure what would be best. I want to do light to moderate gaming, and I plan on Blu-ray, but that's about it right now. I would rather <$100 but anything under $150 is fine. Also, I would prefer if it had HDMIs or came with HDMI to DVI connectors, as the monitors only have D-Sub and HDMI. thanks for your help.

no, im looking for medium settings, nothing too fancy.
The newest game i have at the moment is FSX, so its not too much of a problem.

Because I REALLY like having 2 monitors, and 1 will be my new TV, and I like to watch TV while on the computer.

i see, the thing i dont like about that monitor is that the ratio is 800:1, thats not really that good, you'd be better off finding something thats 1000:1 or higher

Yeah. I know that but it's not really worth $300 to me. I will keep looking, as I'm going to wait a bit before I buy.

What about this one?

or this one?

It seems that all the 28s are 800:1.
