Hello,

Here is my question, I just bought a small computer from HP, something I'm gonna use as a work computer but I will keep it at home for backup purpose, since I already have a desktop and a laptop at my office.

Ok so , here's my setup.

PC #1
2 DVI SLOT
----------------
PC #2
1 VGA SLOT


At home I currently have my entertainment computer(PC #1)that I use everyday for internet and gaming, this computer run on a multi-screen setup so 2 screens are plugged in.

I just bought this new computer (PC #2) that has only 1 VGA SLOT.


I would like to know what kind of hardware I need to be able to use both of my screens while being on PC #1 and then just be able to switch to PC #2 and also use both screens (If It's possible) if not just use 1 screen, but at the same time I want to be able to use the same keyboard and mouse for both system.

Someone told me about KVM switch , but then there are single kvm switch and also dual kvm switch , which one should I use without spending a fortune?

Sorry if it's not really clear but English isn't my primary language :D
Thank You!

This may not be what your looking for but it should point you in the right direction http://www.directron...k.html?gsear=1

Kinda expensive but I would think they make something a little cheaper.
