I was about to ask whether the Remote Desktop resolution is going to be quite poor. I'm only numnber crunching on the 2nd box, but run big excel spreadhseets so poor resolution coudl create quite lot of eye strian.

I'm going to get dual DVI ports on both PCs then I can try the remote desktop route and upgrade to a full KVM soltion if required. Thanks for everyones advice.

No, the resolution will be exactly the same with remote desktop.

You keep mentioning dual DVI ports: Are you using dual monitors? Note that Dual-Link DVI is a single DVI connector. A single DVI port can be either single-link or dual-link (most modern DVI outputs are Dual-Link), and you need one dual-link DVI port and one dial-link cable for your monitor.

I'd still be interested to know what video outputs your current computer already has.
