Thoughts?

Wish i could just buy a good card lol.

Cheers all!
You can, I know some do that with the Intel onboard if they have issues with multi-monitor + Free/G-Sync (due to issue posted below).

Some apps will even outright crash if you drag them between monitors of different refresh rate, yet work fine if refresh is equal, and so on. The oddities and issues are endless.
It's due to graphics cards having 1 pixel clock and the different displays not having a nice multiple of that pixel clock. It is very hit or miss whether or not you have issues, but the vast majority of people don't. And if you do, there are things you can do to avoid them.

Might be kinda hard to do both at the same time with 1 monitor

JackCY Multi monitor setups often don't work 100% issue free especially for gaming on one monitor and playing videos on another. This gets even worse when monitors are not of same refresh rate, etc.

VeritronX You'd need to turn off gpu acceleration in vlc settings.. might be called dxvr (direct x video renderer) iirc. chrome also has an option somewhere to disable gpu acceleration.

yer, you might be right...

Alex132 See if changing to high perf power mode makes a difference.

other issues that I have encountered recently might also effect you, was looking in to stuttering and found that enhanced sync and vsync do not work together, might be a factor but just a random idea.was watching a video last night explaining about it. im using enhanced sync and free sync, no vsync if you use them.
enhanced sync means you don't need vsync.
Guessing speeds not the issue


As for sync i am using none of them as far as i know, just the defaults.

Can VLC be forced to use CPU acceleration? as its has lots free when gaming.

Doesn't seem to matter between Prime on Chrome, or Files on VLC


Thanks for the input guys, Much appreciated!
