I'll try to keep it short. Thank you for any help.
Just finished a new build: (i3 8350k, rx 460 (im getting a 1060 6gb in the next few months this was from old build), ASRock z370 Extreme4) https://pcpartpicker.com/list/fHQh7W
I thought I would be able to just run one display from GPU and one from iGPU. Didn't work.
After some searching I thought the answer would be going into BIOS chipset options and enabling iGPU (since adding the graphics card disabled it.) Didn't work.
I went back to BIOS and changed my primary display output to onboard instead of PCIe. Worked, HOWEVER... there is a drastic performance loss. games I run on the display plugged into my 460 are run as if using the iGPU when I disable iGPU and play the same game on the same monitor performance is all back.
Is there anything I'm missing? anything I could try? or is my best solution running one monitor until my new graphics card comes and I can run both displays off of that?
