Main monitor fps limited by secondary monitor?

Whenever there's an animation playing on my second monitor, my main monitor's framerate looks like it gets locked to 60. The animation can be anything from a twitch stream to a youtube video to the picture upload animation on discord. I could be in a jump server getting 500 fps according to cl_showfps 1 but if there's an animation on monitor 2 it doesn't feel anywhere close to 240hz on monitor 1.

Anyone have any idea how to fix this?

Primary 240hz monitor driven by RTX 2080
Secondary 60hz monitor driven by GTX 1050, which I got to attempt to fix the issue by having two different video output devices, but the issue persists.

in case you didn't know already, if you press windows+p, a menu will open that will allow you to toggle the second monitor output, it's the quickest and easiest way to do it. I know that ideally you wouldn't have to do this, but it's worth knowing in case you cant find any other solutions.

I changed the nvidia settings and it didn't really change anything, my main monitor is still outputting way lower than what TF2 says it is. Win+P just brings up a projection screen with no option to change my refresh rate (I'm on windows 10 if that makes a difference)

Are all your drivers up to date? Have you also tried using different ports/cables on the 2080 ?
