I would say the 30" Dell, although the resolution is really high & u won't need that high res., but if u can afford it & want it ( for the future I'm guessing :)  ) then go for it. btw, Monitors are usually better than TV's for Gaming :)

My System is;
Intel Corei7 990x, asus rampage III extreme, corsair F 120 SSD, 12GB 1600mhz low voltage ram, 2 GTX 590 in SLI.. I do have a asus MT276H right now but all of my friends told me that using a 1080Pixels monitor doesnt mean anything for my graphics cards, higher resolution is better i guess, so the tv and the monitor is the same price and just wanted to hear you guys about this, thanks mate :)

Usually 1920x1080p is the best ( quality to price ratio wise ) I guess :) 
For gaming it should be really good quality, but of course 2560x1600p would be much more clear ( but u won't notice it much while gaming, with all the stuff happening around u [ bullets flying, racers racing, etc ] :p  ).
& no problem, anytime mate :D 
Oh, btw, nice system :)

Why would you say monitors are always better then tv's?

What would be the main differences between them, for example a Samsung 27" (Samsung Syncmaster P2770HD) and a Dell 27" (Dell U2711)?
Or what would be the differences between a 24" tv and 24" monitor?

What I meant was for Gaming, Monitors are better than TVs. Sorry I wrote that inappropriately, I'll change it now :) 

And Yes, usually Monitors are better than TVs ( Gaming wise ) if u take the same inched & same res. Monitor & TV.
Because usually, the way the contrast & brightness work is different & usually the way the picture looks is different ( when connected to a PC of course ). I don't know about the technical details much, but if u take a TV & Monitor & play a game on both ( setting ur graphic card to duplicate the image at both the TV & Monitor ) then u'll notice the difference.
That's also the reason why we use 'Monitors' for PCs & not 'TVs' ( usually ) :p 
Don't get me wrong, some people prefer to use TVs for their PC. I guess they probably like the way it 'looks' :)

doesnt matter a monitor is always gonna give a better picture than a tv. as the monitor will often default to 60HZ or above while a tv will normally be 30hz.
as your running x2 590's the monitor is your only choice as you will be wasting the potential power of the cards running at such a low rez of 1080p. you could go for a multimonitor setup but for gaming the single monitor with high dpi is perfect for that card.
