Select different xorg configs at startup?

I have two different xorg configurations I use at different times for different setups (one has 2 x-servers setup so I can watch movies on one screen while not bothering what im doing in the other) and one is just setup for my monitor for like gameplaying or when I dont need the tv to be on. my question is,,., is there anyway before rhgb that I can have a selection come up to choose which xorg.conf to use , instead of having to copy one over rename the other one, and reboot everytime.. I am willing to do away with rhgb for good if I can just get some kind of way to do this without having to do it manually every time..

thanks in advance.
