Wondering If A KVM Switch will work...

  1. Hi,
    My monitor only has 1 VGA input that i use for my computer, but i recently moved into a dorm room and can't fit a TV in here, so i bought a VGA cable for my Xbox 360 to play on my monitor. It's really annoying to keep switching out the VGA cables from computer to xbox 360 and vice versa. I was wondering if a KVM switch would work? I was thinking something like this...


    or if you know of a different way, that'd be great too, thanks for all your help.

    Warn about KVM switches make sure you get one that has it's own PSU otherwise in time it acts up on you where the keyboard, monitor or mouse might freeze up..

    He probably won't have to worry about it, because it looks like he won't be getting one with keyboard and mouse support, just VGA.
