If there is any activity on my second monitor, my fps in tf2 drops down to sub 60. this can be something like watching a youtube video to just getting a steam message or someone chatting in my twitch chat. my main monitor is 144hz, secondary monitor is 60hz. this problem goes away if i only have one monitor plugged in. i have this problem with other source games as well, like cs:s and gmod.

i've attempted to reinstall tf2, remove config / custom folder, close geforce experience, update drivers, and restarting

cpu : amd ryzen 3600
gpu : geforce gtx 960
ram : 16gb
motherboard : asus prime x570-p

main monitor : acer GN246HL 144hz
2nd monitor : asus VE248H 60hz

if u have anything i should try, please let me know

It's because you're using different refresh rates on a 9xx series gpu, it's a hidden issue courtesy of Nvidia

I found this thread but I know there's others on here about it https://www.teamfortress.tv/48796/display-hz-different-from-monitor-hz

You can disable hardware acceleration for any app on your other monitor to "fix" it, and setting your main one to 120hz should reduce the effects quite a bit

yo i was completely fucking wrong i guess, it's a windows issue apparently?

im confused as to why changing GPU fixed this for me, but I also changed monitor at the same time...
