I have 2 monitors. One is a 47 in 1080p Panasonic

The other is a 19in iSymphony with a resolution of 1366x768.

My question is, does that determine what type of CPU/GPU I shoud buy? Obviously I want max resolution.

What would you suggest I get for those?

Also, I only want to use one or the other. Doesnt matter which one

My budget for my first build is about 700-800 bucks and I play Skyrim, shooters.

No. Unless you're getting a computer from the early 2000s, any POS today can drive a 1080p display. If it's 3D gaming you're concerned about, then the GPU does matter if you want smooth framerates.

A Core i3 and Radeon 7850 or GTX 660 should be a good enough combo for this.

Got it. Would you recommend a Radeon 7850 over a GTX 660 or vice versa or what graphics card would you recommend?

Well, if this were any indication: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/549?vs=660 the GTX 660 performs better in most tests by a small margin.
