If the advice is Dual DVI is sufficient can I get a connector to convert dispalyport to Dual DVI?

There are several converters that do that.  They are all expensive compared to a simple DisplayPort or Dual-Link DVI cable - it'll cost you maybe $60 to $200 for one of these converters, with a typical price being $100 to $150.

Is there any reason why you don't want to take advantage of the switch built into the monitor?  I.e., plug new PC video card into dual-DVI port; plug workstation into DisplayPort; then use the external switch box just to switch the USB peripherals (keyboard, mouse).
