Windows 7: New monitor (Dual Setup) FPS issues

I have tried yes, and while the issue is smaller, the FPS drops still remain.

FPS drop in what ?
Still waiting on the link.

You`ve already figured out how to get things working properly in your 1st post. You need to set it up like that and use it like that if you want to use the Primary monitor at 120 Hz, and there is no reason to game on the 2nd monitor if you just bought a 120 Hz monitor, that makes no sense at all to me.

Seems to me, in your particular case, with your particular PC, everything has to be equal, same cables same monitor refresh rates (possibly even alike monitors) and that`s it.

If the 120 Hz monitor just won`t work out, then just return it and be done with it, before it`s too late.

The FPS drop that I receive while watching 60FPS youtube videos (I didn't feel a link was needed as these are quite easy to find), I have confirmed that this is not due to my internet speed, and that it is instead to do with Google Chrome not maintaining a solid FPS, using the Chrome FPS counter I can see that the drops only occur when the Chrome FPS drop below 60.

I have found that this has something to do with the window being maximised and it seems that while maximised, the window is somehow running or is being seen as running on both monitors at once.

If the Chrome window is not maximized but is windowed and stretched to full screen size (make sure that the window border does not cross into the second monitor) the FPS will be as they should be, if any part of the window crosses into the second monitor, the same FPS drops will be observed so It seems that there is a problem with maximised windows where they are kind of on both monitors at the same time resulting in these FPS drops.

I never asked for a youtube link, I asked for your video card link, from the manufacturer.

Stlll waiting on that, this is the 3rd request.

Why would ever have your Chrome browser cross 2 monitors ?

Why are you bringing on all these self inflicted problems ?

Here is a link to my card:
GIGABYTE - Graphics Card - NVIDIA - PCI Express Solution - GeForce 700 Series - GV-N770OC-2GD

I never said that I would span Chrome across 2 monitors intentionally, I mentioned that 'if' that happens the same FPS drops are noticed, I mentioned this to help demonstrate that while maximised it seems that this it the way the 2 monitors are being interpreted, either by Chrome or by my system.

There is no reason that card won`t do everything you ask it to, the problem extends from the Hz difference.

Fix it or live with it.

I`d return the monitor.

Or stick with the single 120 Hz monitor if you have no issues with it by itself.

Dual Monitor Setup w/ Dual ATI 4870x2
What is the best setup for running dual monitors with dual video cards? Plug one monitor into one card and the other into the second card with Crossfire off, or turn on Crossfire and plug both monitors into the same video card? Both monitors are the same.
