    Hey, I have a question about my graphics cards in my MacBook Pro..

    My question is: I have two Video Cards Nivida GeForce 9400M and
    the NIVIDIA GeForce 9600M. Now I knwo the GT is obviously better but what im trying to figure out is how do I switch my graphics crad from the 9400 to the GT for example I'm doing a presentation about a graphis model and I dotn want the graphics to be displayed with the 9400M I want it to be displayed with the GT so the quality is better. My guess is that it automatically switches to the GT when it detects more advanced graphics, but if this is the case How do i do this manually?

    Thanks, Please Help Soon

    Go to System Preferences>Energy Saver
    There is an option at the top that allows you to switch between the different GPU's.

    the quality of the displayed image shouldn't differ at all unless its being rendered in realtime
