I run a workstation with a total of 3 GPUs: one Quadro 4000 on PCI slot 1 and two GeForce GTX780ti PCI slot 2 and slot 3, all of them on the motherboard.
Leaving aside that in some cases Ae can take advantage of multiple GPUs, for the most part it depends on 1 GPU only.
Now the issue - the fact that my weak Quadro 4000 is installed plugged into PCI slot 1 on the motherboard makes it the default card that Ae sees and uses. Is there a way to somehow make it use one of my GTX780ti instead?
I know I could simply swap the cards on the motherboard but this is not an option for me, I need to keep them arranged as they currently are. I wish there was a dropdown of some sort where I could pick my primary card.
Hope there is a software solution to this.

This is simply how this stuff works on the system and driver level. You would have to create a dedicated client that bypasses the normal drivers to gain more control over this stuff and this is simply out of scope for a mainstream app like AE, even more so given how deaf, dumb and blind it is in the OpenGL/ CUDA department, anyway.
Er.. that's disappointing and immature for an app like that.
Thanks for letting me know.
