Recently bought a side monitor (60hz) to use with my main monitor (144hz) and whenever the second monitor is plugged into gpu my main monitor is capped at 60hz. I found some Nvidia gpu solutions to this problem but i never found any that would fix my problems with an amd gpu (5700xt).
 
Is there any way to fix it? im using a 3800x btw
depends on what you are trying to achieve.

if trying to use the displays simultaneously; gaming or other "surround" applications:
you have to use displays with the same refresh rate.

if using them in other scenarios that don't require a "surround" display setup:
depending on the CPU, you can have one attached to the motherboard I/O port(s) and one attached to the GPU.
though this will lead to separate desktops that cannot display the same applications extended across both screens.

Thanks so much for the help. And does this mean that if i use another 144hz monitor it will work properly? if so i think ill just do that.
