How to change what GPU a game uses

So i have a GTX 1070 and a GTX 960 in my computer right now and i want to tell a game to use the 960 over the 1070. However when i go into the Nvidia Control Panel it does not show the ability to change which GPU a program uses. I was told SLI might be required for that to be an option

My question is, how do i tell a program/game to use the 960 over the 1070 or do i need SLI for that to be possible?

    You can't. You can either use one or the other. As for SLI, you must use 2 or more of the same GPUs.
    For example, SLI for GTX1070 would be 1070 x 2 or x3.
    SLI for 960 would be the same. 960 x 2 or x3.
    Your mobo also needs to be SLI compatible.
