well, if your motherboard supports using both at a time, it actually wouldn't be a bad idea to offload a bit to the igpu. now that temps on the dye might be a little higher (just a littlle)

there's a similar topic here:

TLDR: I've seen my GPU running at higher clock and unable to go to a lower power state with 2 144Hz 1440p screens connected. I'd offload it if possible

Could always use nvidia inspector to have the gpu idle properly. 

 

I always use the igpu to run a spare monitor.
