Default Garmin GDU470 7 in center stack?

I am not that close to purchasing avionics yet, but starting to think more about wiring and panel and especially installing autopilot servos which forces more of a decision on brand. I am leaning quite a bit in the Garmin direction and was wondering if anyone has considered or installed a gdu470 portrait 7” screen in the center stack instead of going for a gtn750? What I notice is that people tend to install the gtn750 in the center stack strictly to take advantage of the larger screen and the price premium is huge for that privilege so I may be missing something.

I think I could still fit a gtn 650 or gnx375 in the center for ifr but for a lower cost mfd panel close to the left seat I am thinking this might make more sense to me than another 10 inch screen on the right side where it is more difficult to reference for the left seat.

Thoughts?
