    well Im about to blow a bunch of cash on a new display(s)
    best bang for buck? (canadian dollars)

    1 x 23" = $1550
    2 x 20" = $2000
    1 x 30" = $3000
    2 x 23" = $3100

    I currently have a 19" LCD that I use for my PC but wont use the PC hardly ever once I get my PM tomorrow.

    1) Buy a Dell LCD
    2) Use the extra money to give your Macs some lovin'

    I can't verify it myself since I don't really like the quality of the ACDs, but many MR members swear the ACDs use the exact same panel as the Dell ones, which means the big premium you pay is really on the aluminium case.

    It's really up to you though, to spend it where it matters getting more ram for your macs which can give you a better user experience, or just to have a pretty thing on your desk?

    Depends what you are doing. The 30" is everyones dream, but can give you a sore neck! It could be just too big for needs. A dual display setup is also very nice. But it each display will ask a lot of your videocard. So if you play games or do 3D work, go for one display. With two displays attached, the videocard will have to split its power, even if you are just using one display for playing the game one! Or you'll have to put 2 videocards in your PM. Personally I would go for 1 23" ACD, and am planning on buying one, after Apple released the new line. I always worked at home with 2 Apple CRT's , one 20" and a 17", did a bit of webdesign. But noticed with gaming that my videocard didn't work very well, until I unhooked the second display.

    True - Specially the Dell 24' widescreen should be an option at the moment. It's for sure cheaper & better then the ACD 23'.
