My main display uses hdmi into my 1660 ti, and i recently got a new display using DVI into the same GPU. I run games on my display while running spotify, browser, or xbox app on my second. Ever since I got the new monitor, I have been experiencing game crashes in every game. Once i unplugged my second monitor, the crashes stopped. Could my second monitor be overloading my GPU? I would think browsers and such would not do this, but I don't really know.

If yes, could I plug in a GTX 660 (low end card) and use that for my second monitor or will that draw too much power from my 500w PSU? my drivers are up to date and problem still persists

Thanks!
