I run two monitors from my machine - both running at 1920x1200
My secondary monitor just has a blank desktop on it and is used when I am using desktop apps.
My question is :
When I am playing games, I run them just on my primary monitor (fullscreen 1920x1200). My seconday monitor just sits there displaying the blank desktop.
Will I get better performance if I unplug my secondary monitor whilst gaming (essentially creating a single monitor system) or is the GFX card not really doing anything to it that will hit perfomance for the primary monitor?
Please remember, I am only running the game on the primary monitor.
