2 using DVI cables third runs through active displayport
Intel Duo Core 3ghz
I have recently purchased the 3 monitors listed above. I didn't create a multi-display group at first and when I didnt, I would constantly loose the monitor connected to the displayport, would no longer display anything and would just revert to just using the other two monitors.
If I opened a game it would display the game on all 3 monitors as the same thing if the game didnt support triple monitor Ie. Starcraft 2 but when I closed the game I would loose all resolution and would be extremely low. With both these issues I would have to unplug and replug the adapter multiple times to get my resolution back to where it was or some times restart the computer to force it that way.
Without the group created I would get a resolution of something like 5760x1080 but since creating the eyefinity group I am being forced to use a resolution of 3964x1024 and let me tell you, it looks horrible. Everything is now stretched, images, video's just about anything I do, what were boxes are now rectangles and even the fonts/words on the the screens just look horrible.
How can I get the higher resolution I had before the group was created so things look proper?
Do these monitors still require you to buy your own displayport cable? Maybe you got a crappy one. This is assuming you meant "native" displayport (no adapters) vs. "active"
Your post has some oddities that don't make sense. eg. There's no way to get 5760x1080 without creating an eyefinity group. Just so we're not making assumptions, please proof read what you wrote and correct if needed.
When in eyefinity mode, It's normal for games to display the same thing on all 3 monitors if it (the game) doesn't support eyefinity or if the eyefinity resolution hasn't been set in the game's config options.

I had a feeling someone was going to say there was no way, but up untill I made the group (something I had JUST read online) I in fact was running at that level resolution. If you really need me to, I will remove the group and see if it'll revert back to what I was using (but with all the annoying problems that came with it) and then take screenshots.
Well the game thing is fine, I just turn off the other two monitors so its not distracting, but when it comes to everything else, I cant work like this. School starts back up on monday and if Im working in Illustrator, Photoshop, zbrush or what ever program's we'll be working with this semster I can't have everything distorted like this because when I take my work to school, its not going to look the same.
If you want 3 displays connected, 2 of the 3 DELL U2312HM need to be connected to each of the two DVI ports. The remaining U2312HM needs to be on the DisplayPort.
The U2312HM monitors have a DP input, so I would strongly encourage you to use a direct DisplayPort cable connection, and avoid the added expense of an ActiveDP adapter.
Each display supports 1920x1080, so the classic/standard Eyefinity Group resolution will be 5760x1080 with all 3 displays horizontally in a row. When you create the Eyefinity Group (for all intent and purpose) your computer thinks you have just 1 monster monitor connected that runs 5760x1080 resolution. If a game supports "Eyefinity" it basically means the game supports those big, big resolutions. I am not sure what to expect playing a game that doesn't support those resolutions. I would just disable the group if you wanted to.

omg Marc, that is the greatest thing I have heard, I never even THOUGHT to see if my monitors had a Display Port Cable connection since I've been using that adapter ofr so long and I just got the monitors about a month ago!
This is fantastic, I will be heading out to pick one up first thing tomorrow!
The most logical answer is the one least thought of. haha.
