You can't turn off a video card once you turn your computer on.

because no plug-in cards are designed like that presently!

powersave means using less power, not no power.

You CAN power down some cards. lspci can tell you if a card can be powered down. How? Ask google. But even powered down it needs some energy.

What you need is a second box.

Haha what?

If the card is not in 3D mode, it will be in "power saving" mode, i.e. downclocked.
