Game feature. Not many games support it, unless you're running EyeFinity on an AMD card. In that case, they all have to be the same size and refresh rate.

I only know of the supreme commander games.. Those support dual monitors natively. I know there are more, i just dont remember the names
For other games, you have to edit the configuration files to run in a window and to run at the resolution you ant it to run at.
