I have two specialized programs I need to run at the same time. One uses 1024 X 1280 pixels with Large DPI 120. The other need 800 X 600 or 1024 X768 with normal DPI 96. Could this be done with two different grafics cards and two monitors? (I have never used this site hope I did correct)

Or is there any way to run dual WinX and switch between them?

U can use "VMware Workstation 5". It runs a virtual machine on ur PC. U will have to install XP for the Virtual Machine also.
Then in the real WinXP start VMware and select ur virtual Machine and u will have virtual WinXP runnin simultaneously .
