As graphics cards increase in power and many new and current games don't seem to challenge the GPU power available, more PC gamers are discovering Ultrawide (21:9) and Eyefinity/Surround Display gaming, such as myself.
I wanted to demonstrate exactly how this affects the games you play in the easiest way.
So here's a small album that shows how Aspect ratio changes the view within a game you might be playing in ultra wide ratios.
A lot of people seem to have a bit of a disconnect between screen size, resolution and aspect ratio, so this demonstration clears up the misconception of Large screen size versus Aspect Ratios.

1600x900 Superimposed over the 3200x900 in the exact same position

an 800x900 halfed cut image Aligned perfectly you can see exactly how much wider the 32:9 perspective extends past the 16:9 perspective at the exact same location, perspective, and FOV.
Without a doubt, the ultra wide display shows that the Aspect ratio extends the view. This happens regardless of resolution setting.
