I use Synergy too, with 1 screen. If your screen has multiple inputs, you can hook up both to the same screen, switch input and continue working on the other with the same keyboard and mouse. Very convenient. And better (imo) than a remote desktop solution like VNC (performance is not exactly native).

so you think synergy is the best choice?

For what you want, yes. You have native graphics and performance with Synergy as it is just giving you control with keyboard and mouse to the second PC. It doesn't render an image of the desktop to be send over the network like VNC, which can be slow and/or color inaccurate.
