Like many OP's, i excuse me now for not being able to search if a similiar topic has been posted before.
My question is in the title: "How seriously do dual monitors impact gaming fps?"
I'm asking this question because i'm thinking that my current system is a bit underperforming.
the HDD partitions are from one and the same RAID0 setup with 2 1TB samsungs
the Graphicscard is a HD4890 OC with 1gB of ram
Monitor setup (as you can see from the pic) 17inch CRT on 1280x1024 (connected trough DVI>VGA) + 42inch LG HDtv on 1920x1080 (Connected trough DVI > HDMI)
Now why i ask is: I usually do dailies, farm runs, pvp etc on my CRT and like to raid (and play epic games like AC2) on my TV, and i noticed that on both screens my FPS is suspiciously low, for wow between 20 and 50 FPS (Ultra ofc, not going any lower with such specs)
the other screen is usually just Idleing, during raids my CRT is on wow wiki for strats etc, when i play on my CRT my tv is usually just playing a TV (aka showing content from the cable, not the pc)
TL;DR: Low FPS with a (in my eyes) monster PC, can dual monitors cause this or should i be looking somewhere else?
