Planning on buying another 22 inch monitor
Jun 13, 2012, 2:35 PM
I'm currently using a 22inch monitor and I was thinking about buying another so I can dual screen. I was wondering how fast this would wear out my GPU as opposed to just using 1.
The current card is a radeon 6870.

using two screens instead of one shouldn't have an effect on how fast your GPU wears out.
Things that decrease life expectancy of a GPU are high voltages and high temps.
