Thoughts on duel pc stream

Hi so iv been streaming a while and been on and off it due to various reasons however recently I brought the HTC VIVE to add to my stream setup which is pretty great fun. However the limitation of it only running on the only HDMI port I have on my GPU doesnt help me when I have a ultrawide LG monitor. So here is my question do you prefer 2 pc setup or single pc setup? Currently running a 2 pc setup but have the issues of the LG not running correct resolution, Hardware I have 2 pcs listed in Signature, Mixer for audio, HDMI Spillter and switch for consoles (not in use currently).

Helpful comments and ideas would be great :D so stick with 2 pcs or 1 pc for both, only just brought gaming rig hardware i upgraded.

Why don't you just get another cable for the ultrawide..?

Literally any other cable that would satisfy one of the other three ports, dvi to hdmi maybe?

ok thanks for the help but not really helped on much else, ok if i was to do that then wouldnt that affect the stream output that would be going out via Display port for example as in can you have VIVE in HDMI then Displayport as the LG in 2k ultra wide and then DVI to HDMI to stream in 1080 so the same image as the display port.

DVI will support 1080p

I got a dvi adapter off amazon to try will this allow me to connect that to the Avermedia card and mirror the main display at ultra wide resolution.
