    I want to use one monitor with two PCs. The reason is I got this new fast PC and still have the older slower one. I want to use it for surfing & downloading while I work on my new PC. I want to queue up files for downloading with Flashget on the older PC & then switch to the new PC for work. I don't have space for two monitors but two PCs can be easily accomodated in my desk.

    This will also isolate my new (main) PC from security risks of the Internet. Can anybody tell me if there is a switch or any other hardware solution which will allow me to switch between PCs with flick of a button, instead of disconnecting & connecting the datacable everytime?

    Easy, Buy a Dlink (or any other make) KVM switch. This allows us to share a keyboard mouse and monitor between multiple computers. We use these switches to manage the tens of servers we have. Buy a KVM switch that supports two computers.
