Advice: 2 computers utilizing (single) dual monitors

My current rig with all my applications is a XP PRO 32 bit machine with dual 24"monitors. I've just finished building a windows 7 ultimate 64 bit unit. I would like to incorporate the new windows 7 unit as my main new computer. however I need both computers since some of the apps and printers from XP 32 bit will not run on the Wndows 7 64 bit. My thought was to connect the Windows 7 computer to the dual monotors. Connect both computers (hardwired) via my router. Keep the XP pro computer hooked up to all printers for now until drivers are available. I can also go wireless but thought I would get faster throughput using cables? Then if needed run the XP pro computer via remote desk top. Any thoughts of a better way to do this?
