my monitor is an old Samsung it runs at 29hz and uses HDMI. This monitor was a hammy down from my grandparents so who knows how old it is I had a lot of issues trying to figure out what monitor it is I found no luck anywhere.

My first monitor is the https://www.amazon.com/VG248QG-G-Sync-Compatible-Gaming-Monitor/dp/B07TNM8L6S/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=165hz+monitor&qid=1620185508&sr=8-3 it uses display port and runs 165hz no problem.

So your GPU is trying to drive one monitor at 29Hz and one at 165Hz? Lower hertz values can cause stuttering and tearing, especially if one is much higher than the other. Not the end of the world but tearing can occur much more frequently. Your CPU is no slouch and your PSU seems adequate. I know you marked this as solved but I think it's honestly your monitors.

Specs

Graphics: XFX Radeon 5600xt

Processor: i5 9600k

Corsair CXM 2015 550w PSU

RAM: 16gb 3200mhz dual channel

 

I'm running into this issue when I'm watching a video on my second monitor in game it tends to have my frames drop. Even when there is the tinniest movement on my other monitor it still drops when I use a frame counter the frame counter doesn't drop but you can see it in the display that it does anyone know if I need an upgrade or is it something I can fix with a simple setting.

I've experienced this, but mine is caused by high CPU usage when I'm watching videos on other screen (which is expected)

 

You can use frametime graph from msi afterburner with rivatuner to see if you're getting spikes, fps counter might not change but you might be experiencing stutters from high CPU load

My PCs: Desky | Beddie | Miney | Benchie

Things I need help with: (nothing at the moment)

Spoiler

none atm

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

Spoiler

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

I have exactly the same gpu😁 Are the monitors running at different refresh rates? It's a fairly common issue amongst 5000 series amd gpu's

It's a fussy GPU, awesome when it behaves, obnoxious when it doesn't, I find the best use is make sure if you use multiple monitor that they are set to the same settings, refresh rate, latency etc... And when you update the driver ,every two or three updates you should use ddu and wipe the old ones and clean install the new, and also a less common issue is if yours is like mine I had a problem with the performance bios,I had somany issues it almost found itself in the trash but I switched to the second bios and haven't had a problem since

What kind of monitors do you have? Are they the same? What cables are you using?

So your GPU is trying to drive one monitor at 29Hz and one at 165Hz? Lower hertz values can cause stuttering and tearing, especially if one is much higher than the other. Not the end of the world but tearing can occur much more frequently. Your CPU is no slouch and your PSU seems adequate. I know you marked this as solved but I think it's honestly your monitors.

Is your cpu actually maxed out under the condition you described?

You could open up task manager(Ctrl + alt + delete keys) and click on the performance tab is the easiest way to view your cpu usage or you can download hwinfo it's a free tool to download that will show you all your computers sensors
