Sooo,
I currently run a gpu client on my gpu 1 whenever my computer is on and a gpu 0 client whenever my comp is idle. I was wondering if it would be possible to put my 7600gt back in and run my two monitors off that and have both 250s folding all the time. If i did that how easy would it be to switch my monitors back so i could game? I mean could i just plug and play? Or would there be complications?

Just get a 2 or 4 system KVM switch, oh wait you are talking about switching them back and forth on the same system. if your just browsing the web I wouldnt bother. Just keep the clients running while your browsing. I've never been a fan of swaping cables a lot, wears on the connectors.

You can use hdmi and dvi so you can switch source at the monitor after switching graphics cards in the graphics settings when you want to game.

Man these spammers are geniuses...put (NO SPAM) in the thread title to hide the spam.  It's brilliant.  Hopefully this doesn't catch on...what if rapists wear signs that say (NOT A RAPIST)?  They will be raping everybody! D:
