So "before" NVIDIA 3D Surround hits next month, which games currently support or can be hacked to run across multiple screens? I know I've seen Team Fortress 2 and HL2 on 3 monitors. Anyone know how to make it work? :)

Check out widescreen gaming fourm. click the game and look for surround gaming. Lots of games support it.

A little Zombie Panic. I think I like the middle monitor overlapping the side monitors the best. That reduces the gapping between bezzles :thumbsup:

Never been impressed with multi-monitor gaming... found it more annoying and stupid looking then anything else.

Me too until 3D was added to the mix :D I'm just preparing myself for Fermi :angel2:

I think you would change your mind if you tried it in person.

I have tried it in person. I don't like playing games on it at all.

Setting the middle monitor in front of the side monitors and overlapping their bezles makes a HUGE difference in the surround experience. This cuts down on the gap between monitors and also somehow seems to make your eyes focus better on one large screen rather than seeming like seprate screens. At least for me it does :)

It's getting harder & harder to go back to the ol' CRT now. The mild LCD motion blur is annoying but having the vibrant colors & super widescreen is making me want to make the transition permanent :) Bring on the 3D and DONE!

Has anyone else gotten this Widescreen Fixer to work on Windows 7 64-bit? I can press the little hot key all day long but it won't apply the fix in MW2 SP :headexplode:

Oblivion looks pretty cool in surround. Needs the power of the Fermi's though to keep it at 60 fps min at 5760x1080. I am only running on a single GTX 295 now though.

Same here. If It was one single monitor that was HUGE then I would love it but the monitor casing and lines bug me too much.

Only game I use multiple on is FSX and that's for the ****pit. Don't notice the cases then.
