Hi everyone,

My configuration is:

CPU: i7-4930k
Cooler: Corsair H110 Liquid Cooling
Graphics: ASUS Radeon HD7990
PSU: Corsair AX860 Platinum

I am considering using two ASUS VE278Q monitors on this graphics card for Flight Simulator X and Grand Theft Auto games.

More often than other, I will be using both displays for multi tasking between several applications like Word, Excel, VLC etc simultaneously.

With the above rig, would it be necessary to install a second graphics card, or will the above graphics card (being dual core HD7970) be able to handle both monitors for the aforesaid purposes?

Could someone also explain, if both monitors are used in gaming, would this result in a significant drop in frame rates compared to a single monitor?

Thanks everyone for your support.

- Yousuf.
