Dual screen games.

Do you know of many dual screen games? I've come across one, supreme commander. Is there any others ?

Think you will find that any that do support it will be along the lines of MMO or RTS type games, with the main map/world on one screen and the controls/etc on the other. You won't find any FPS games that support it and you certainly wouldn't want to force it, that is unless you like having your cursor/crosshair split be tween the two screens.

In that situation, triple screen setup is best. I thought there werent any nvidia cards that support that though.

Correct, and haven't seen anything anywhere that it might be coming with their next release of cards.

Shoul have though of this before, but this is a very good site for seeing what does and doesn't work with multi-monitor,

Unfortunately most are triple and not dual, but it will give an idea.
