Ok. I have a Dell 24 inch monitor which is connected to my PS3 (I used HDMI to DVI-D converter cable and it works great, no problem).
The problem is I'm gonna buy a new computer and my Dell monitor only has 1 DVI-D input. I need a switcher that help me connect 2 DVI-D device to my monitor (which only has 1 DVI-D input)
Can someone help me with this> I check Amazon/Newegg but don't know what to choose. And the switcher should be able to support 1080p. If you can find a 3-port or 4-port switch, it would be great, because I will also buy an PS4 and XOne (which brings the total number of devices connecting to the monitor is 4)

Unless you are willing to take a chance with cheaper devices (I assume you are not as you are buying xbone and ps4!) this one is awesome. http://www.amazon.com/Kinivo-501BN-Premium-wireless-ada...

Well. It looks great. :D 
So if I use that switcher, should this be my set-up?
4 HDMI to HDMI cables (connecting PC, PS3, Xbox One, PS4 to the switcher)
1 HDMI to DVI-D cable (connecting the switcher to my monitor)
Thanks
