Calibration of Dell U2713H and U2412M

Have just splashed out upgrade my and my wife's monitors.  My main activity is RAW photo processing in Lightroom and my wife is a digital photobook person (Blurb). For years I have been using an old Spyder 2 to calibrate our moniutors so wanted to find out what my options where with these new ones.

Firslty will I be doing more harm than good to use my Spyder 2 as understand the 2713 is factory calibrated? Not sure about the 2412M

Secondly if what we are doing is for a hobby and not for commercial sale can I justify spending the  oney on an Xrite device?  i'm assumnig such a device could be used ofr claibrating the 2412M or is that wrong?

Basically trying to mak the smallest investment, but get good colour on both monitors. i do a lot of underwater photography so good white balance is important.

Thanks for any advice

Mike
