I used to quite enjoy low light conditions so faster (I know that doesnt exactly fit in with my budget) stabilised lenses would probably be a boon?

So, is this two lenses, one lens or three and any suggestions that wouldn't break the bank? The IS kit lens for the 40D looks quite reasonable for one of the choices as a starter.
I'll start off by admitting I know pretty much FA about this. But ...

Whatever you buy you really should get one of these as well:
