How many monitors will my PC support without lag???

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Can I run a triple monitor setup on this PC without experiencing a drop in quality?


Center monitor will be the one below: Asus - ROG SWIFT PG278QR 27.0" 2560x1440 165 Hz Monitor

Other two are planned to be 1080p 27inch 70-144hz?


I will be gaming. However, I will only be running the games on the center monitor and discord/chat on the left or right.


Here's my PC...

you shouldnt experience any performance hit larger than running those apps in the background

I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play MTGA & watch anime at 720p...

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 


#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.


Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016
