    I was wondering what I would need to hook up two VGA components (PS3 and Xbox 360) to my 19" computer monitor if it only has one VGA port. Would I need a VGA splitter? Can anyone point me in the right direction with a link of some sort? Also, would I lose picture quality by doing this? Thanks.

    if I understand you, you need a vga switch or a kvm.

    If I purchase one of these switches will I lose any picture quality at all? Thanks.

    No, not unless your cables are too long or if you use a cheap switch. Your monitor only has one input that you can use?

    It has both DVI and VGA inputs but I have my Mac mini hooked up digitally and my 360 hooked up with the VGA cable. The PS3 will most likely release with a VGA cable so this is why I was asking the question.
