Default Eyefinity with 3-monitors with a Dell u2312hm and two u2311h

I own two u2311h and plan to buy another monitor to go for eyfinity should a buy another u2311h or should i go for a u2312hm and use it as a center monitor for a 3-monitor eyfinity solution

i really wanna go for the u2312hm cause of my preference of led blacklighting over ccfl, and use it as the center monitor my question is whether is a wise choice, in the aspect as to how good will it look in a game as with 3 same monitor aka 3 u2311h's even though the monitors are pretty much the same since u2312hm is a successor of u2311h...

what would you suggest any advices welcomed...

Thanks in Advance...

This is ultimately up to personal preference really, and it sounds like you'd rather go with what you have due to the reasons listed. Unless price is a big concern, I'd say stick with what you have and love.

It will work fine as long as the resolution is the same, which it is. I'm sure with some image adjustments you could get the colors to match very closely. If you need a third monitor buy which ever you prefer. I've even seen a larger center monitor with smaller sides in eyefinity. Like a 22" 24" 22". Still looks good for most games.
