    I have a MacPro with two DVI graphic cards and one monitor. I like to use a KVM switch to choose which card I'll be using my monitor with. I have tried one DVI KVM but it always left the non-active card in powered mode. Meaning, the computer would continue to recognise that something is connected. Anyone, know a working DVI KVM model which will hard switch, as in powering off the DVI path?

    ..simply, as the OS otherwise would think there are two monitors connected and adjust the desktop accordingly :S . also, it won't stress that card if it is not being used anyway.

    ..not gaming but 3D modeling and ray tracing ; )

    anyways, thanks for the links, ill check it out.
