I just purchased a new computer, and I'd like to run 4 monitors out of my Radeon HD 7850 and two out of my motherboard.  Currently, whenever I turn on my integrated graphics card in BIOS, my 7850 takes a graphics hit.

I'm testing all of this with a video game.  I get around 60 fps when the integrated is disabled, and 30 fps when it is enabled.  The game is being played through a monitor connected with DVI on the 7850 during both tests.

Any recommendations or insite as to why this might be happening?  

Also, is there a better way to test this instead of through just running a video game?

 

Edit:  I did some testing, and it seems when the integrated is disabled, the activity is somwhere between 25% - 35%, while when the integrated is enabled, the Activity is between 15% - 25%
