    Default Monitor & Resources

    I know I could work this out for myself, but if someones already done it......

    What is the effect on system resources does the size and number of monitors have?
    I have a 22" and a 19" running together. Both LCD. Not having any problems just wondering if performance would be improved by shuting down the 19".

    If I decide to replace the 22" with a 30" how much of a drag would that be?

    Jack, depends what resolution the monitor is at, and the drain will be on GPU, nothing else really....

    You will notice no difference in 2D with 2 or 1 monitors with performance, only in 3D will the extra monitor be a penalty...

    Default Re: Monitor & Resources

    my videos stutter when displaying on the monitor designated the 'secondary' monitor, but playback normally when I drag the window to the primary monitor. My graphics card is quite old though (geforce 4)

    Some game dont work either when I have 2 monitors enabled.
