For all those people out there with allota money in their back pocket here is a lil bit of hardware news! Matrox's latest 'Parhelia' graphics card has the ability to display games across three monitors at once. The extra real estate can be used for peripheral vision in action and simulation games, or to simultaneously display inventory and other 2D screens in role-playing games. At the card's launch at the beginning of the month, only a handful of games were said to support the feature. Matrox has now announced that the following 20 games (virtually all listed here at the modDB), both recent and older releases, which support surround gaming.

Aliens Versus Predator 2
Anarchy Online
Ballistics
Clive Barker's Undying
Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project
Gore: Ultimate Soldier
Grand Prix 4
Heavy Metal: F.A.K.K. 2
Microsoft Flight Simulator 2002
Mobile Forces
Neverwinter Nights
Quake III Arena
Quake III: Team Arena
Return to Castle Wolfenstein
Star Trek: Voyager Elite Force
Star Trek: Voyager Elite Force Expansion Pack
Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast
The Wheel of Time
Tribes 2
Unreal Tournament
X-Plane
The fact that a game supports surround gaming doesn't mean that turning the feature on is as easy as clicking on a checkbox. In some cases, users must edit the registry or use in-game console commands to get the feature to work. For more information, read the review on Parhelia.
