    Hi,

    I hope that the title of my thread makes sense.

    I have dual monitors on my PC with GTX 1080TI card.

    I don't know if I am doing the settings correctly for dual monitors. It was my understanding that GSync is capable with only 1 monitor. I don't know if you set it up with the menu options on the monitor, or if its a NVIDIA Control Panel issue.

    Monitors are both AOC 2460G5.

    I hope that I am explaining this correctly. If not, my sincerest apologies.

    Best,

    G

    A few things here:

    1) GSync can run on multiple monitors. For best results, they should be identical monitors.
    2) GSync is configured in the nVidia display properties
    3) You are using FreeSync on GSync hardware. Yes it should work, and I believe nVidia actually supports it now, but they don't guaranty performance or quality. Setup is the same as far as I know.

    Thank you so much for your response!! I truly appreciate it!

    Do you know if I have to physically change any settings on the Monitors themselves, they are both identical monitors?

    Thanks so much again!

    I've only got one GSync monitor, and there was an option on the setup menu to enable/disable gsync. But I seem to recall it was enabled by default.
