Performance hit running Graphics card AND internal VGA?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I use my computer for work and for play. For work, I use large spreadsheets and need two monitors. For play, I just use one monitor. I have my main screen running off my GTX 780, and my secondary screen I just hooked up to the internal VGA. I'm wondering if there will be a performance hit doing this? I know that the VGA will feed off my ram a little bit, but when I turn off the secondary monitor to play a game, my 780 will be unaffected right?

Thanks!

Running a second display should not affect your performance at all really as long as there is no programs running (At least not something you will notice).
So don't worry about it smile.gif

Thanks for the reply. I've been running into some performance issues but it might just be my CPU bottlenecking the system so I'm going to do a new build and then test everything out smile.gif
