I want this option generally..I said in games because there i can see clearly the bad quality of the graphics just because of widescreen..

I'm pretty sure that option is specific to each game...

I don't think there exists an option to run all games in that mode. If stretching bothers you that much, you can force most games to run in unsupported widescreen resolutions by editing .ini files or registry keys. Go to http://www.widescreengamingforum.com/ The forum has a lot of threads dealing with individual games and you can get more help there.
