Which cab to buy?

Ok, I've been saving up and looking for a good cab to go with my amp head for a while and I narrowed it down to basically 2 choices, which are a Marshall 1960A or a Randall RS412XLT cab.
I have 2 guitars,both will have an X2N in the bridge in the near future, a Randall RH200SC solid state head and play many types of metal and classic rock. Basically I chose those 2 cabs because I need a stereo option, at least 200watts RMS handling and wanted Celestion speakers. Price does not matter since I will soon have enough money to be able to buy either one. Any helpful suggestions,thoughts or comments on which one would be a better choice would be appreciated.

i'd say get the randall since it's probablly voiced for solid state amps better. But see if you can get it used first. I dont think i'd ever pay over $600 for a cab, except MAYBE an Uberkab (which pretty much works with anything i've heard...)

I'd go with the randall because of the v30's butyour choise of an amp isn't as versatile as you described

Well, I used my friend's Crate cab and my head sounded pretty good,but the Crate cab was only 100watts RMS. I most definitely can cover pretty much any metal tone, and it does classic rock decently. This doesnt bother me too much considering I'm more of a metal type of guy.
Thanks for the suggestions so far, any more are welcome.

Both would be fine,similar cabs.1960's can be had cheap second hand,those randalls arent as popular,but they may match your head better.
