Default connecting 2 video cards to a single display

I want to connect both my GTX 470 and my GTS450 to the avr using hdmi, the 470 for gaming and 450 when watching bluray movies. Is this possible?

The only way I think you could do that is if your bios has a card selector in the Bios .where you could set which card you wanted to be your default card.I know on mine I can set if I want PCIe -1 or PCIe-2 or PCIe-3 to be my first card.some don't have this selection.
