So i just got a second monitor for my desktop im using a gigabyte 7950 graphics card with a 3570k i5 cpu and i am having problem with lag. When i was using one moniter everything was fine like when dragging windows around screen i had no lag. But as soon as i hooked up my second monitor and put it on extend mode i seem to have bad lag when dragging windows around is there a way to fix this ??

By the way both monitors are running at 60hz at 1920 x 1080

Try to disconnect the second monitor display cable when the computer is ON and check for the lag in the first monitor. Then try to update the graphics card driver and check for the issue.
