Do I need to upgrade my GPU for a triple monitor setup?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello! So I just wondering how heavy of an impact would having a multi-monitor setup (tripple) be on my GPU (Asus Dual RTX 2060 OC Edition) be? I currently have a 1ms 144Hz monitor but plan on getting 2x 1ms 240Hz monitors and using my current one as a vertical mounted monitor for Discord/etc.

If you are not gaming across all 3 monitors, and just gaming on 1, and discord / web browser / music / steam on the other 2, then the performance hit, if any, would be small.

This. A single RTX 2060 can support 4 displays (most of Nvidia's consumer grade cards do). I currently run a triple monitor setup comprising of a 1080p TV, and two 1080p monitors without issue on a GTX 1060. I don't game on them at the same time but I have on multiple occasions run a YouTube video on the TV while gaming on my main without issues.
