    $3,000 should buy you about 10 of the best!
    FIRST, check to make sure a tuner isn't already built-in to your PC's graphics card. Many Windows Media Center PC's already have them. RTFM or check the specs on the PC manufacturer's website.

    I have a 9800gt and I drive two monitors through it just fine. Not much setup necessary, except the drivers. I think they go for about $100. If you don't need that much power a 9600gt should play oblivion fine too. I am sure someone will chime in about ati cards, but I haven't used one in around 3-4 years so I cant recommend one.

    PS. you didn't mention if you were going to try and play games using the dual monitors. If that is the case you may want something a bit more powerful.
