Has anyone seen a good matrix of Cisco switches and their port-types, etc?
I'm looking for something where I can say 'I need a switch with X 10-gig
ports and Y 1-gig sfp ports, which models meet that criteria?'
I know I can look through all of the data sheets at cisco's website, but
there has to be a better way to see the specs of a large array of switches
at a glance.
I can't think of anything like this off the top of my head but here's
what I would do if I were in a pinch and trying to put configurations
Find someone who sells (or resells) Cisco gear professionally. They'll
help you identify equipment which is appropriate for your build.

We maintain one in spreadsheet form ONLY FOR FIXED CONFIGURATION SWITCHES with price, performance, and ports, which we're happy to share. I can provide it by email or post it to our wiki, depending how many people want it.
I have found the best way is to find the product you are after, for example
2960 switches and then they have a nice compare models feature.
Right. Except the original question was "Which units can provide X Y and Z",
and get the answer "you're looking for a 2960, a 3711, or a XMJ-6, each has at
least one model that supports the config you want".
*Then* you can go hit the nice 2960 model comparison chart.
