USB + DVI and Displayport peripheral switch?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey all!

 

After getting my brand spanking new (pre-owned) Powermac G5, I realised that I will need a switch of some sort as having two sets of peripherals on my desk would not work in any way due to my now dual PC setup.

 

I was wondering if there were any peripheral switches that would meet my needs? (Details below)

 

Needs:

A switch that I can connect my USB Keyboard and Mouse, My 3.5' Speakers, and my Displayport Monitor, and switch them between my Workstation PC and PowerMac G5.  Switch must have Displayport and DVI outputs

 

Peripherals

1x USB keyboard

1x USB Mouse

1x 3.5' Speakers

1x Displayport Monitor

 

Custom PC IO:

8x USB

1x Displayport output

1x 3.5' audio jack

 

Powermac G5 IO:

3x USB

1x 3.5' Audio+Mic

1x 3.5' Mic

1x 3.5' Stereo

1x DVI output

 

Thanks all!

I don't think there's any KVM switches that have both Displayport and DVI inputs so you're probably going to need a DVI to Displayport adapter for the Mac.
