Using ROG Swift as Primary Monitor and PB278Q as secondary?

Hi Everyone,

I am really interested in purchasing the ROG Swift monitor, but I have a few questions about it. My current set up is a PB278Q (awesome WQHD monitor) and I'd like to use it along with the Swift. Basically, I would have the Swift as my primary monitor (using the display port on my GTX 780) and the PB278Q in the DVI port of the same GTX 780. Would having the second monitor mess up G-sync at all (the primary reason I want the Swift)?

The Swift would be for gaming (my primary hobby) and the PB278Q would be for photo/video editing and working in ArcGIS map making.

Thanks in advance!

Anybody have an idea? I want to throw money at this thing;), but I want to make sure it'll work as I want it to (stated above). If not, then I'll just throwdown on another PB278Q.

its up to you what monitor to use, personaly i have a tv as main and a acer as "slave".
the swift uses a display port ONLY ( non hdmi or dvi from what i know of ).
since the main monitor you game on will be using most of the GPU power ( slave minimum ) for the thing you run on it.
you can deside your self what monitor going to be main and slave.
