I've just bought a workstation for 3D animation but I am also a gaming enthusiast. The card im using is a NVIDIA QUADRO FX 3800. Obviously this is not going to run games as its not optimized to do so. What I would like to know is if i purchased a GTX 295 and installed it along side the QUADRO is there anyway of switching what GPU I am using for different applications. (i.e. I dont want to run the cards using SLI as I understand its not possible, I just want to switch which GPU my system is using when running games.) Is this possible at all? Any feedback would be much appreciated!
Still can't seem to find an answer. I have been googling pretty much non stop and no solution has presented itself yet. Can anyone tell me if this is possible or not please? and if so has anyone on here ran a setup like this?

Unfortunately i do not think this can be done, I had same issue with a gaming/workstation system, could not get it to work, had to have seperate systems. 1 system with quadrofx 3700, other gtx 260 SLI for gaming.
Workstations are built for pretty much that, working wont play games well, but can render maya 2009 awesome.
