Hey all,
What kind of Video Card can I use to pretty much get 2 pc's out of 1 tower?

I'm looking to use my 1 regular tower (which I am using the onboard Video currently but has expansion slot for a regular Video Card) but plug 2 monitors into a new video card, 2 keyboards, and 2 mice... so that it's bascially 2 computers in 1.

Is this possible?

I've seen cards that let you plug in 2-3 monitors, and use 1 keyboard and 1 mouse to control them all... but what about added keyboards and mice?

Thanks all!

no, you can have two monitors on one computer that acts as more space or same screen...but not different setups off of one pc

You can use virtual machine to run two different operating systems on one PC. I don't see why you can't just plug in 2 keyboards and 2 mice into your USB slots, just make sure you don't mess with the other set and you should be fine.
