As the topic obviously inquires, does X3 have dual monitor support? It would be pretty awesome if I could get X3 to show on both of my screens so I can have a better idea about whats going on around me.

Has anyone done this, know if its possible, or know what to do to get it to work?

It works, but it is not very pretty. You just set the dual monitor mode to span both screens horizontally at the driver level and the game will allow you to select dual monitor resolutions. The downside is that your crosshairs will be right in the middle where the monitors join and anything else that uses the centre of the screen will also be split.

Maybe you should think about getting one of these cool monitors just for X3!
