Here is something to consider. Where is your CPU going to be?
The Apple Cinema displays are Digital DVI and cable distances are a problem. We went with the Dell because they have VGA inputs as well as DVI. We needed VGA for the 25' cable lengths. We currently have two 24" Dell displays and when you set the Apple to display at the native resolution, the dell monitor says it cant do it. So we are running in non native display and viewing the images stretched! That sucks.
We cant find the problem with the display resoltion cause Dell says it is an apple problem. Apple says it is a Dell problem.

One more thing, I used dual 30" displays on a job recently and found it to be massive overkill and my head was constantly turning left and right to view across the screens. I ended up just putting all the FCP windows on one of the monitors and using the other monitor of other appliations.
