Hey, so I use my 7950 for one of my monitors and I use the integrated hd4000 for my other monitor just for skype, youtube, etc. But, if I have a youtube video up on my 2nd monitor (Integrated) it makes my other screen lag when im in a game. Would buying a cheap card just for my 2nd monitor fix this? If so, what card. Or if there is another way.

Sorry for the poor explanation, it's hard to explain.

Have you considered outputting both monitor from the HD 7950? I'm pretty sure it is capable of handling up to 3 or 4 monitors.

Connect the first monitor to DVI-I and the other one to HDMI both to the discrete GPU.

For some unknown reason my first monitor doesnt have a DVI port.

Then use an adapter or a another wire. You probably have VGA I'm assuming? You can for example... get a DVI to VGA cable? Or whatever you have on both the video card and monitor.
