Ditto everything stated above. Additionally, a wider tank affords more flexibility and ease of aquascaping. I still haven't set up my tank, but from everything I've read, more volume (wider certainly adds more volume) is better.

Actually FishFreek, the numbers you posted are the volume of the tank, not the surface area. The surface area would be:

50g = 648 sqin
38g = 432 sqin

The point is still the same, the numbers are just a bit different.
