GPU options?

Let's say I want to optimize my CAD GPU AND my gaming GPU in the same workstation.
If I can install 2 GPUs, how difficult is it to toggle between them?

Graphics cards do not work that way only one of the cards and be the display card, other cards can only be used for compute if the applications you use support that (Archicad does not).
One thing you could do is to virtualise the pc into separate gaming and work PCs with different video cards setup for pass through for each virtual PC but this will require a huge amount of setup

I assume you are on Windows.
I think it is possible to specify in the display settings which GPU a specific application should use. My computer does not have an integrated GPU, only a dedicated GPU card, so I cannot show a screenshot where you can select which GPU a specific application should use, but it is possible to do.
