The new Screen Resolution tool does graphics changes dynamically via
Xrandr, without modifying the xorg.conf.  Changing graphics drivers
requires modifying the xorg.conf, which is why the new tool lacks this
capability.

If you mostly just want to select between -ati and -fglrx, or -nv and
-nvidia, you should probably be looking at Jockey and EnvyNG.
