Eyefinity different resolution?

I know this question has been posted before,
but I just want some additional info that I can't seem to find...

I currently have a Samsung 1600x900 monitor,
and a Acer 1440x900 resolution monitor.

I am running an MSI GTS 250 (upgrading for Eyefinity to a MSI Radeon 7870),
and am planning on running 3 monitors.
My plan is to buy another Samsung 1600x900 resolution
monitor, and put my Acer in the middle,
I am not sure this will look very nice...

I can also buy an additional Samsung 1600x900 Monitor,
and have 3 of the same resolution,
but I'dd rather keep the money.

I realize the 2 1600x900 monitors will be downgraded to
1440x900, but I am not sure how nice it'll look?

When I change my Samsung's Resolution to 1440x900
it isn't full screen, will it be like that during eyefinity!?

Help will be much appreciated thanks in advanced

Why would you change the Samsung monitor resolution to 1440x900?
Yes in eyefinity too you will have black borders.

Eyefinity drops the resolution of the screens to the lowest resolution doesn't it?!
So there will be black boarders??? How come when I look at videos online of different resolution screens there aren't any??

I don't think so. I havent tried eyefinity with games but everywhere else the monitors are set at their default resolution.
I setup a 1024x768(old CRT), a 1650x1080 and a 1920x1080 in eyefinity. No problems with resolution at all.

So Eyefinity looks perfect on desktop no matter what size display's you pair? Ans in game does anyone know??

Yes it does.
When I was playing fear 3 in options of the game, both the monitors I had connected at that time was displayed but I didnot enable the second one as I thought my graphics card couldnot support it. So I think it is compatible with games(atleast fear 3) too.
