Default Ultra20_Apple30Cinema_NVIDIAFX3450

Anyone tried the above? (Ultra 20 + Apple 30" + FX3450)

My goal is to connect an Ultra 20 with the FX3450 to an Apple 30" Cinema Display at a resolution of 2560x1600@60Hz. In theory, this should work by altering the xorg.conf file but I wanted to see if anyone has run into this configuration with any success (or if it doesn't work at all with the odd resolution).

The Apple Cinema Display requires the dual link DVI (included on the FX3450) and the Sun Ultra 20 supports the FX3450. Therefore, it looks like all the pieces will fit together and I should be OK. But, there isn't any documentation that I have found (NVIDIA, Apple, or Sun sites or a general Google search) that recognizes this possibility. I saw tompd's post for the 1920x1200@60 which gives me a little more hope. I'm not looking to do a dual head config (yet).

Any thoughts before I pull the trigger and buy the U20 (I have the Display)?
