  1. That means that one monitor is being powered by GPU, one by the onboard graphics of your CPU. Plug them both into the GPU.

    Some setups actually disable integrated when a GPU is installed too. I've found I can't use integrated when it is plugged in.

    In any case, he still must plug them both into his GPU.

    It won't disadvantage the GPU in any way if that is what your thinking. I've done similar before and the difference between 1080p game + extra monitor for internet and just the one 1080p game I saw was not visible at all.
