KVM Switch or router? Need advice.

  1. Thanks in advance...read through Search...still unclear.

    I am running into high CPU usage at active periods during the trading day since I began running two automated order execution applications, in addition to eSignal and my squawk.

    I'd like to run Traders Audio and eSignal on one box, and my prop firm's trading platform with the two apps on a second box. Both are Dell Dimension 2400s.

    I guess I could use a wired router as well..having another keyboard/mouse isnt that big of a concern.

    My second monitor (two is all i need) is plugged in using the USB port, fwiw.

    I cant quite figure where, and which KVM switch to acquire, and wondered whether the router option would be a better solution; any suggestions much appreciated.

    I use a Motorola SB5120 Surfboard cable modem.
