Hello everyone,

I recently bought a third monitor to be my primary monitor for gaming at 144hz.

To try to achieve 144 fps on the primary monitor, I bought a second GPU (GeForce 2060) to run just the 144hz monitor off of. The other two monitors are 60hz and running off of the old GeForce 1060.

Still, I can't achieve over 100fps on most games. Any ideas on the reason for this? Any help is appreciated, thank you.

Another thing is that when I run a game/video on one of the monitors connected to the 1060, the GPU load on the 2060 goes up for some reason.

Any way that the 2060 is processing some portion of a game/app that is running on a monitor not connected to it?
 
Your RAM is only running at 2133mhz in that link. You need to enable XMP in the BIOS and set it to 3000mhz. This could have a significant impact on FPS but is game dependent with Intel, some games don’t seem to care about RAM speed on Intel platforms.

Thank you for the tip, Sizzling

This is the new benchmark: https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/28639266

I thought I might see a 50% increase but not as much as I'd hoped. Do you think the RAM hardware is faulty?

Thank you again for the answers.
