This is as true of Amplitube 3 as it is of my Line 6 equipment. Settle on an amp you like and then audition different cabs to get the one that brings out the characteristics you chose that amp for.
The more that I've played with Amplitube, the more I find this to be the case. Changing cab models can make dramatic differences in tone -- even when just switching through the (rather mysterious) "1", "2", or "3" variations of the same nominal cab model.
It wouldn't surprise me if the same were true of real hardware rigs -- but I never had a lorry full of different cabs to casually swap in and out in order to see if it's true.
