    Is there a way to use my iMac's LCD Display with a PC? Basically, I'm building a PC to compliment(dont' laugh) my iMac and I would like to bypass buying a monitor for the PC, sooooooooo, I was thinkin that it would be sweet if I can hook up an A/B switch to the computers and utilize the iMac's Display for the PC. Is this possible at all?

    if there was that would be pretty coool...I would be so freaked out if someone copied the iMac but placed an x86 processor in there...YIKES!!! iMac sales from Windows switchers will drop probably...whatever...OS X will always be better...

    Isn't there a video input on an Imac? Or can connect the pc to the Imac via usb and watch it in quicktime? Same like an external usb tv card. Let me explain: Hook the pc up to the external tv card, which has video in, hook the tv card to your mac via usb and watch your pc screen in quicktime on the Imac. So it is possible, but I guess it isn't high quality.
