I recently bought a RTX 2080 video card. I am currently using 2 x Dell Ultrasharp 27 inch monitors running at 2560 x 1440. I have 27 inch Acer Predator gaming monitor on the way with also runs at 2560 x 1440.

My original plan was to use one of the Dell's along with the new Acer in Dual monitor setup. But I was wondering how much of a performance impact it would be on gaming if I keep all 3 monitors running. My use case will pretty much always be gaming on the Acer (144 FPS) and using the other two for web browsing, etc.

An alternative to this would be re-installing one of my older 970 GTX in parallel with my 2080 RTX (non-SLI ofcourse) and then try to run the non-gaming monitor(s) off that card. Not sure if this scenario is even feasible or not but was just a thought.

What would you guys suggest? My priority is to minimize the impact on gaming performance.

Thanks.
