With LCD monitors I'm forced to run whatever games at the native resolution, unless I watch the images to be all stretchy and messed up right?

You should see some of the videos they posted with surround gaming.

Yeah althought it definately gives a advantage in terms of viewing radius, the stretch is too ugly. Notice the differance in widescreen between the new games and old. New games offer more viewing with minimal stress while old games ( like Warcraft 3 ) just stretch the screen out and offer no viewing advantage.

On that widescreen forum site, that the Major posted earlier, there was a section devoted to patches and fixes, to get games to work in widescreen.

yeah pretty much. However running at a different resolution isn't as bad as you think...stuff isn't "stretchy and messed up"...it's just that images are fuzzy and not very clear.
