21:9(75hz) Main & x2 16:9(60hz) Side Monitors

Hello, 

This kind of setup comes to my mind recently. I'm planning to buy a LG 25UM58-P as my main monitor then I'll put my x2 Acer R231 Monitor on each side of the main monitor (1 on the Left & 1 on the Right) but then I found out that the LG 25UM58-P has a 75hz refresh rate and what I'm thinking is that to lower the main monitors refresh rate to 60hz to match with the side monitors. Is that a bad idea or thing to underclock the monitor permanently(I'm not going to change it again once it's set)? I'm just a casual gamer and I'm fine with 60hz.

You can underclock it all you want, however I'd just leave it at 75hz.

 

Right now I have my Dell Ultrasharp U2515h overclocked to 80hz and my Acer POS 24" 1080p monitor stock at 60hz without issue.

Specs: CPU - Intel i7 8700K @ 5GHz | GPU - Gigabyte GTX 970 G1 Gaming | Motherboard - ASUS Strix Z370-G WIFI AC | RAM - XPG Gammix DDR4-3000MHz 32GB (2x16GB) | Main Drive - Samsung 850 Evo 500GB M.2 | Other Drives - 7TB/3 Drives | CPU Cooler - Corsair H100i Pro | Case - Fractal Design Define C Mini TG | Power Supply - EVGA G3 850W

Sure, 60hz is totally safe

In-short, I'm totally fine even if I underclock the 75hz main monitor down to 60hz? Just confirming though. I'm worried about the screen tearing thing etcetera that I read on some articles.

This feels reassuring. Thanks.
