hello, i will soon be doing my first computer build and i want to ask a few questions about monitors.
i dont want to run an eyefinity setup because i just wouldnt be able to concentrate on the massive screen size but i am considering buying 2 monitors and having a setup where i have one monitor for gaming and another for checking things like skype, youtube and Facebook. first of all, is this even possible??
if so, this is mainly so i dont have to tab out and just generally because i think it looks pretty nice and professional.
but the main question is that can you run the general monitor from the cpu's integrated graphics and then have the gaming monitor run from the graphics card??
and if you can, would you still be able to use the control panel to combine them into one large monitor when using both monitors generally??
the main reason for this ofcourse is to not impeed the performance of the graphics card while gaming.
for anyone who wants to know what cpu, graphics card and monitors i am considering buying, they are as follows:
i7 3770k (with integrated intel hd 4000 graphics)
msi 6970 lightning 2gb
iiyama prolite 22e2273hds
