dual monitorsli performance

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have 2x 760sc in sli, And running everything pretty well off. No over clocking passed what it came with. If I were to run on my 32"@ 1360x768 (which I already am) and add an extra monitor which will be significantly smaller (15" maybe smaller) would I see much of a difference in my performance in games? I just want the second on for monitoring software and whatnot.

I dont think since windows only uses 2d clocks speeds difference in performance is minimal.but 2x 760gtx have bottleneck at 1366x768

Having a 2nd monitor for just steam/voice/whatever will have no noticeable effect on gaming. I've done that with 660sli and a single HD5850 before that, so you should be fine. And yes, 760sli is complete and utter overkill for 1366x768. Get yourself a cheap 1080p monitor, that GPU power is wasted on such a low resolution.

Remember that screen size has nothing to do with impact of performance, its the resolution so 15" or less doesn't matter. Just get something thats comfortable. Like its been said, you will enjoy 1080p with your 760sli.120hz/144hz would be great to really enjoy what your setup is capable of. I tried gaming bf3 on a tv 60" 1080p before bf4 and really didnt find the experience worth while, preferred my 23" 120hz monitor. Not knocking people who game on tv's though, sometimes those large screens feel more immersive biggrin.gif

With the hefty amount of money I spent on the build, the monitor was last on my to get list since I have my 32". I like the size of the 32" I prefer using a larger monitor, I'm not all that interested in any multi monitor setups for gaming so definity don't want 3. I've been looking at a few 27" monitors (smallest I'd care to go) and my desk wouldn't make it easy to use any larger than a 32. I hooked up my 17" to see how I liked the extra visuals for my temps and also threw my media player on there as well. I'm liking it but I need to do some rearranging or maybe find a smaller monitor for it. I've actually noticed that I've had higher fps in a few gamrs since I've done it. Almost as if my video cards are putting more power now or something.
Thanks for all the info. I'd definitely be willing to trade my 32 for a 27 on Craigslist if I could find one but I don't feel like its going to happen.

A 100-120usd monitor(check pcpartpicker) of 1920x1080(22inches would be enough)
