Can anyone confirm with multi monitor setups running primary monitor on pcie and the other 2 monitors on the inboard card you would get a performance increase with the pcie. Instead of using the pcie card for all 3?

Are you gaming on three screens at once or using them for something else?

desktop on 2 monitors, gaming on the primary.

Sorry I was on my phone when I typed that.

I am pretty sure about this but would like to confirm...

Would I increase fps on my games if I did not use my other 2 monitors on the same graphics card? If I put the 2 extra ones on my onboard would that free up any usage?

You might gain 1-2% in game, but nothing worthwhile, by doing that.
