To me you play games in 1600x1200 w/this monitor (sides will be cut off slightly) and use the native res. in Windows for DVD viewing/web surfing, etc..
You would only do that for very old games, all the newer ones support widescreen format no problem.

It's awesume too, because you have a much larger field of view with this thing. I can see things on the sides that people with standard monitors can't. I have peripheral vision with this thing!

Here take a look at World of Warcraft in 1680x1050, sorry for the bad picture but I had to open up the shutter time and I don't have the most steady hands.

You'll notice stuff off to the right, that is my other old flat panel (in portrait mode) that I have Rivatuner loaded up watching my 6800GT's tempature. There is nothing cooler than running dual heads! It's awesume running a game and then email, stats, or a movie in your other monitor at the same time!

Friggin rocks!
