3 monitor setup question

At the moment I am using 3 monitors:

left monitor: 120hz monitor @60hz
middle monitor: 240hz @ 240hz
right monitor: 120hz @60hz

Does 3 monitors cause more mouse tracking latency than 1?
Should I keep other 2 monitors at 60hz or 120hz?

Do these settings have an influence on mouse movement at all?

Having more than one monitor increases lag, whether that's noticeable is up to you. If you just play fps games I'd at least turn off both side monitors while gaming. If you actually use them it's not that big of a deal.

Maybe. Not sure it was measured.

Whichever setting you want. If you use 3 monitors (surround) at the same time when playing, they'll switch to same refresh rate. If you play on primary monitor, then run it at 240 to avoid extra delay when alt tabbing from fullscreen.

Is there a source with measurements for that? I have not measured any additional lag to my main monitor when I have another connected. (There is of course the issue of monitors with different refresh rates, which is fixed in the next Windows update, but I'm excluding that.)
