True, I couldn't even find one on ebay right now :-)

Not necessarily: you can easily start a second X-Server dedicated to the
game you intend to play with i.e. a resolution of 3840x1024 pixels, then modern
LCDs will scale that to their native resolution. I did it this way the time I had
three 1600x1200 LCDs attached to two 7800GTX cards in SLI-Multiview mode.
The scaling is certainly recognizable, but for UT2K and X-Plane it was good
enough for me at that time.

You may consider purchasing a NVIDIA Quadro NVS 290 PCI-E *x16* and
on NVIDIA Quadro NVS 290 PCI-E *x1* card. Those are around $250
(but then you may also considering to opt for the TH2G).
