silly question, but how does one game with 2 monitors?
hardly ever any games that work using both monitors at the same time.

I don't think anyone games on two monitors, unless they're curved ultrawide

I personally just use the single 144Hz when gaming - Second monitor is for when I'm working and need both

Depends on what you are doing - But if I am playing something complex it's awesome having another monitor to look things up, etc, and might also watch Youtube videos if playing something grindy / keep open for communication apps / keep an eye on emails.

It's just generally super useful.
