Update - Had to run DDNU to complete get rid of the Nvidia drivers and after installing them again, everything is working normal now.  Weird how a monitor could have caused this.
 
I'm stumped. Having an issue with running two monitors off a 3080 FTW3 and not being able to get frame rates above 80 fps while gaming on either monitor. Monitor 1 is an Alienware AW34518DW 120hz and the other is a LG 27GP850-B 180hz. I have enable/disabled gsync, set the LG to 120hz, switched the Alienware to hdmi from dp, switched which monitor is the primary monitor and put both to scale via GPU(this seemed to fix stuttering). Any thoughts? Used to have no issues with my old 1080ti FTW3 running two monitors via dvi-d and dp and was running a GT 710 to an old monitor with the 3080 FTW3 connected to the Alienware before Nvidia stopped supporting the GT 710 so I got the LG. Not sure what else I should try.

    I'm stumped. Having an issue with running two monitors off a 3080 FTW3 and not being able to get frame rates above 80 fps while gaming on either monitor. Monitor 1 is an Alienware AW34518DW 120hz and the other is a LG 27GP850-B 180hz. I have enable/disabled gsync, set the LG to 120hz, switched the Alienware to hdmi from dp, switched which monitor is the primary monitor and put both to scale via GPU(this seemed to fix stuttering). Any thoughts? Used to have no issues with my old 1080ti FTW3 running two monitors via dvi-d and dp and was running a GT 710 to an old monitor with the 3080 FTW3 connected to the Alienware before Nvidia stopped supporting the GT 710 so I got the LG. Not sure what else I should try.

    First question, does this occur with just a single monitor connected? When you are gaming, what are the clocks and load you are seeing? Is the GPU being utilized properly? Are you using any program at all that can cap frame rates/frame rate limiter etc?

    No, when only one monitor is connected, I get normal max free rates.  When gaming with both monitors connected, the gpu is not getting maxed out and I have nothing that would limit the frame rates.  I'm going to try and do a clean install of the Nvidia drivers to see if it makes a difference.  I'm thinking it has to be a Windows or Nvidia driver setting or something.
