    Yes you can. Some monitors support dual channel inputs so you can toggle between them (kinda like a video switch but built in), if not you can always buy one. Usually the BNC connector types are hard to find

    Its a bit of a hassle to track them cables down if ur monitor supports them but its cheaper than buying another monitor hehe (try a store that sells projectors and related hardware)

    Its me again i was wondering if this is possible i hope it is. I want to have both screens on one hard drive (the one with all the good progs) but i want to have a seperate mouse and key board for each screen so i can do something and my friend can do something else on the same hard drive. coz the othe computer has sharing but it is heaps slow which is why i want the other hard drive.
