Ordered a Mac Pro.. which monitor: Dell 2408WFP, E248WFP or 23" Apple

So I've ordered a mac pro and need a new monitor to use with it.

I've got around 400 in my budget at the moment and i guess im asking is it worth waiting (using my current 19" tft) and getting the apple display in a month or two.

the prices are:

2408wfp 422
e248wfp 363
ACD 600

Im going to be using fcp and i'm very keen to learn how to use Color properly. I'm guessing none of the monitors are accurate enough for proffesional colour correction but for what i'll be doing i hope they will. If its something i persue i'm assuming i'd have to purchase a proper broadcast monitor for accurate colour correction in the future.

I've heard bad things about the Dell with its over saturated reds and green ghosting, is this something that doesnt happen on the Apple display?

Any comparisons i found for the monitors was on a mac forum were i think peoples views are could be slightly biased.

hope someone can help

thanks
