Default 2 Video Cards -- Disable Open GL on single?

Found myself on a steep learning curve with Nvidia hardware and linux

I have 2 cards trying to support 3 monitors

Card 1: GeForce GT 520 1GB

Card 2: GeForce 8600 GT 512MB

Didn't learn until after ordering card 2 that there is a gap in compatibility between series 8+ cards and before the 8 series when it comes to rendering OpenGL together

Having learned this I'm now trying to disable OpenGL support on just card 2 while keeping it on Card 1 so that I can run Gnome 3 -- is this possible?
Right now the setup has xinerama running all screens as a single desktop -- happy to turn the 3rd into a separate desktop but can't figure out how to get composite disabled on a single screen and/or device
