I run a dual monitor set-up in my rig with an MSI N560GTX-Ti and I was wondering if disabling the secondary monitor during gaming sessions would help increase my performance? Or is the result in performance not even worth disabling the 2nd monitor before firing up a game? Just curious. Thanks!

It doesn't matter. It only eats up a little bit of vram usage to run the 2nd display, but we are talking about 40MB or less on the gpu. In terms of graphics performance, the gpu processing power will run the application and output it to the 1st monitor no matter if there's a 2nd monitor hooked up or not.

Thank you. That's what I figured, but I wasn't sure. I guess I could have ran benchmarks, but I was feeling lazy and figured I'd ask on here. :)
