Hello, I shall start off with listing the current components I've got:
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition + some extra fancy cooler for 30$ MOBO: ASUS M5A99X EVO RAM: 8GB GPU: GF GTX 570 (OC version from gigabyte) SSD: OCZ Vertex4 PSU: some sort of OCZ 700W
The thing is that I'm currently running dual monitors setup and whenever I'm watching, say, full HD stream on one monitor and playing not-that-challenging-in-terms-of-performence game I can get quite an FPS drop. Needless to say I won't have such drop if I only use one monitor to do both of these things. What matters the most in multiple monitors setup? CPU, GPU? What would you change? Or maybe I should consider overclocking CPU (if so - how can I do it?)
I use this PC for both games and video/audio editing work as well as programming.
Thanks in advance, Max

Upgrade your graphics but new ones are coming around the corner so wait
Another option. Purchase a Geforce GT640 and install it into the third (black) PCI-Ex16 slot. Connect your HD Video watching monitor to that card while your gaming monitor is connected to your current GTX 570.
