Here are my specs:

Nvidua GTX 1070
8GB RAM
Shared Memory: 4gb
Windows 10
Bios: F7
Core i7

So I had a standard LED tv connected to my PC via a Dual Monitor set up. My current PC mointor is 1080p and doesnt support 4k.

So here's my issue: If I set my display to 4k resultion (3800 x2160 ) all my games run smooth as butter. However, if I watch YouTube, Netflix, anything on Windows Media Playe,r VLC, etc, it runs super slow and choppy. Too the point where it's unbearable.

If I switch my display resolution to 1080p, the exact opposite happens. All my media runs great, but my games run choppy.

I'm trying to find a solution without having to switch my display settings all the time. How can I fix this?
