hey im a switcher gettin the g5 being that I just spent 3 grand on a g5 im sorta strapped for cash for a new monitor. I have already bought a 15" apple studio display and have plans to get another but for the same price (2 15" asd = 1 17"ads) i can get the 17". so the question remains ...... dual 15 or 1 17?

If you already have a 15" and plan to add a second display, I'd certainly suggest the 17" if you can get it for the same price. Also, I'm guessing that you plan to get your 15" second hand, since Apple doesn't sell it any longer...?

IMO, I'd rather have one 17" rather than two 15" displays -- the 17" allow you to see more of whatever you're working on (that is, the thing you can't effectively break across two screens) and when you can afford the second display, hopefully the 20" will have come down to where you can make the 17" your side bar.

I would say go with the 17" as it will be easier on the eyes and more conducive to becoming a secondary monitor should you get a larger/better display.
