Was just wondering if anyone knows how much it would decrease it by. My main monitor is 1080p 144hz and second is 1080p 60hz. Would only use it for watching things / browsing.

CPU: i7 8700k 5ghz 1.31v
Cooler: Noctua NH-D14
GPU: Gigabyte GTX 1060 WindForce OC 6GB
RAM: 16GB DDR4 3000mhz
Mobo: ASUS PRIME Z370-P
PSU: Thermaltake 850w Modular
SSD: 250gb Samsung 850 EVO

Could only suggest it may decrease performance if you are multitasking but that depends on several things and differing scenarios, say you are running a flash game on the 1080p 60hz, browsing a blog on the 1080p 144hz and streaming youtube on the 4k no I don't think you would see a decrease, if you are streaming 4k on Netflix running BF1 on ultra on 1080p 144hz and rendering on the 1080p 60hz yes you probably would see a decrease. it all depends on what you are doing 4k streaming takes a lot of data for your internet connection and could throttle that, rendering/gaming/mining will take a toll on the GPU, multi-tasking takes a toll on the processor.
