Hello there. My PC has 2 GTX 780 in SLI. I have two displays, one for work and one for playing games and watching movies. Though they are in the same room they are located in different and separate desks. I do not intend to use both monitors at once but I would like to know if there is a way to have both displays connected so whenever I want to use display A or display B it's just a matter of turning off one and turning on one. Now I have to hook and unhook the respective displays cables every time I need to use one or the other. Your help will be much appreciated. Thank you!

Can't you just set it on duplicate in windows and turn of the screen you don't want to use?

In clone or extended mode just set one monitor as the primary and when you shut off clone/extended mode (Windows Key + P and select "Computer Only") it should shut off the secondary monitor.
