So I've been monitor shopping, and got a great tip in a comment from prock-- there are 27" IPS monitors available on EBay for less than $400. They're imports from Korea, and feature the same panels that are used in Apple & Dell monitors, though they're generally the A- ones rather than A+. The downside is that they're relatively shady transactions, and you're mostly on your own for a warranty. On the flip side, I can get the Dell U2711 for $699 right now, with a three-year warranty.

Last night I went to Fry's and looked at monitors. I think I've decided that I like the 30" version better. I'm pretty sure I'm going to buy the Dell U3011, though I'm going to wait a day or two and decide.

I used to run a 30" main screen with two 24" satellite portrait monitors. If you have the desk space, you might want to try that with your 20" screens. It's kinda awesome having the huge main space *and* space off to the side to stick chats or reference materials or mail windows or whatever other stuff.
