Right so first off this is my first time posting on this forum, so I apologies if this is in the wrong section or anything.
I recently decided to hook up a second monitor to my PC, but before I could have chance to test it properly my PC broke and had to go into the shop for a repair. Anyway I get it back and noticed that my games had started to Stutter when my characters were moving. I assumed the graphic card the shop had put in was a downgrade, so i ordered and installed a GTX Geforce 560 Ti, Stuttering problems continued. A friend off mine suggested that it could be due to the fact I have the two monitors, so my question is, can 2 Monitors cause noticeable game play issues, like the one I mentioned.
Well while the one monitor is doing heavy 3d games, the other on is just idle right? I mean, normally when you are sitting there looking at your desktop, the gpu is at like 2% usage at most, so I dont think having an idle monitor on the side would drain that much power from your game on the other monitor.
Stuttering problems sound like the game engine.... Like I had problems in Bad Company 2 where it would stutter violently when in a vehicle, but that engine sucked throughout anyway.
