    price drops and intel usually don't go together. At least not in the consumer friendly sense.

    basically they charge as much as they can get away with

    Hey Modacity, maybe you can help me.

    What I'd like to do is run 2 VGA inputs to a single monitor. I've heard of KVM switches, but all the ones I can find seem to be for running one input to multiple monitors, which is the exact opposite of what I need. Does anyone know of a switch or something I could get where I'd be able to easily run multiple inputs to the same monitor?

    Not saying you should get this one in particular as I have no idea on its quality but hopefully it can point you in the right direction.
    Failing that you could get a monitor from this decade and use digital inputs instead.

    There is a DVI input but the quality seriously blows compared to the VGA. Last time I tried it the colors were badly washed out. Maybe it was just the cable I used, idk. Anyway this monitor doesn't have any kind of switch or anything to change between DVI and VGA. The Xbox 360 w/ VGA cable is the other input I'm wanting, btw.

    I was going to suggest using DVI. If the colours were washed out, then it was most likely that the cable was damaged. DVI is supposedly better than VGA, but most people cannot tell the difference. I use DVI because my monitor requires it to enable certain features. The Digital signal just works better or something like that. I'd say try a different DVI cable before buying osme elaborate piece of hardware. I do exactly what you want to do with my own monitor. DVI comes from Desktop GPU and VGA comes from laptop. I press the source button to switch between the two.

    There's no source button on the monitor that I know of though. Maybe the function will appear once it's connected.

    Well the "source" button for me is a physical button on the monitor. It's a Samsung Syncmaster 2053BW 20". What monitor do you have? I thought all monitors with multiple inputs had this button. It might be possible that it will show up in menus after you plug in the other source, like you said.

    Yeah it did, and the quality turned out good too. Surprising, since it's the same exact DVI cable I used last time... Different video card though. So for the first time I have what I've always wanted, a single unified AV setup controlling both my PC and Xbox 360. Thanks!

    I completely didn't notice that the 660's were out.
    Not very exciting at this point, same story undercutting price with superior performance. Only a matter of time before AMD drops their prices again.
    I'm actually kind of hoping they do, especially if it includes the 7970, might grab one.
