I'm running triple monitors from a GTX 970 in nVidia surround and when more than one are plugged in after a few minutes of using my CV1 with perfectly smooth framerates, it will run very slowly (maybe 15fps) for 10-30 seconds before returning to smooth game play. With only a single monitor connected, I have no issue and have perfectly smooth game play the entire time. Any suggestion on a fix so I don't have to physically disconnect my 2nd and 3rd monitors every time I use the Rift?
Intel Xeon X5677 @ 3.47 GHz, yes I know it's old, it's a 2011 rig that I originally built and is "unsupported".
Single nVidia GTX 970 with 356.19 drivers.
Triple BENQ XL2410T monitors (old and horrible TN 120hz), with only DVI connections. Two connected through DVI, one through a Dell DP to DVI adaptor.
With only a single monitor connected it's flawless, but otherwise it's unplayable.
I've spent ages testing configurations myself and searching the internet. Thank you for any ideas.
