Default games supporting widescreen

do games like farcry and doom 3 support widescreen? just wondering, because it the back of my mind, i keep thinking, "by the time i get an lcd monitor, widescreen 1900x1200 prices will be down"

thats just an old maxima with a high price tag . . . only infinitis that are worth it are the G35 (sedan only), FX35/45, and QX56 . . .

but i30s still a good car

last year, a good widescreen display was $2000 . . . now its $1600
