Recently switched from 3x 60hz Asus VH236h monitors to a Dell u2412M and a BenQ XL2420t, and now am having more issues then surround ever had.

(Fixed my first issue myself, but if this was a bad way for an unknown to myself reason please share, and the second issue I didn't really fix all that well)

Issue #1: Laggy mouse / windows when using 1 in 60hz and 1 in 120hz Solved
Fix: Nvidia Control Panel - > XL2420t - > Perform Scaling on GPU, U2412M Perform Scaling on Display (Default)

Issue #2: Having 2 seperate backgrounds: Solved... Sort of
Fix: Have an image 3120x1920 and letter box around the monitor on the right's background to 1920x1080 as shown:
6790972501_9d04544c18_z.jpg but the portait monitor must be the main monitor as using the tile effect allows the background to be spanned., anyone know how to change this as this causes the next issue

Issue #3: Having steam open games on the 120hz benq monitor which is not the primary (but not having it primary the max resolution it allows is not 1920x1080 so I believe it must be the primary but then I need a way to fix the backgrounds but I would prefer not to have to always switch back and fourth.
I have tried flipping the pictures in the image file but the tile option doesn't span it properly for the 2nd display if the 1st display does not have the same or higher vertical resolution.


Issue #4: Idle temps have shot up from about 40c to 70c, I have read having 2 monitors hooked up can cause this, gaming temps are still roughly the same, but when I was using 3 monitors across 2 cards the idle temps were 40c, so I assume this one I may just have to deal with.
