those always seemed cool to me, but how many games support those resolutions?

The TripleHead2Go supports over 250
games and also comes with software to optimize games for the wide
resolutions. They have supported games listed A-Z with screen shots
of some on there website:

I have one and it has made many of my games even more enjoyable to
play. TripleHead2Go and surround sound is the way to go for gaming
immersion. TripleHead2Go F.T.W.

It's amazing how illogical a business built on binary logic can be.

yeah looked at thier site, but one question, why can't games just support multimonitors out of the box?

For the most part its not the games
that don't support multi-monitors but the hardware and drivers that
don't. When you play most 3d games the whole level or area is
rendered. what you can see is only limited by the resolution of the
monitor and view distance in the game. Most video cards with dual dvi
support stretch desktop Windows XP (vista not supported). This allows
you to play games across two monitors. Most video card don't have
more than two dvi outputs except for a few. The only way to get more
than two video outputs is to have multiple video cards and even then
drivers don't currently support stretch desktop across more than two
monitors, it sees the monitors as separate desktops. Thats where
Matrox came in with the TripleHead2Go. The job of the TripleHead2Go
is to “trick” the PC into thinking the three monitors are one
continuous display.

P.S. - if your worried about high FPS
while driving ultra-wide resolution you can scale multiple video cads
nvidia sli or ati crossfire and use the tripleHead2Go.

Your willingness to share your real-world experience with TripleHead2Go is much appreciated. Ever considered asking Matrox if they need a TripleHead2Go 'evangelist'? Thanks again!
