how to get a new page layout for account record when we select a particular picklist value

hi all... i need to get a new detail page layout for account record when we select rating value as "Warm". I did this by creating a new record type and assigning this with workflow field update. but i need to perform this task without changing the standard record type of account. 

Thanks

HI Bittu ,

This can be achieved by the help of recordType ,You need to create two record type or how many you need based on your requirment .
Each record type will be assocaited with one page lay out and when ever you select the particular pick list needs to assign the recordtype id  which is related to desired pagelayout .

Also it will be internal user will not feel the record type as we will assign the default recors type in profile level .

Let me know if it helps !

Thanks
