Whenever I play a game on my primary monitor and use twitch on my second than my computer starts to lag horribly. I can't open anything on my second screen that contains moving images or else I will start lagging in game. I think my system is well capable of handling a game and a stream at the same time. I've seen that this has been a problem for others for quite some time but is there somekind of solution for this? I bought a second monitor so I could do these two things I don't really have a purpose for it if I can't watch streams on it while gaming
