Okay this is an odd question, but here is what I would like to do.

I plan on getting two monitors side by side, hooked up to 2 different computers.  But I want to be able to move the mouse in between the monitors, if I go to the right, of the screen, it'll move over to the left of the other computers screen...heh, pretty wild idea but who knows, anythings possible right :)

The reason I don't just hook them up into dual display under one computer is because I need 2 computers to be able to handle the CPU usage I plan on having.  This possible at all?

Thanks

Why don't you just get a KVM Switch?

KVM switch - allows you control multiple computers with ONE (K)EYBOARD, (V)IDEO monitor, and (M)ouse - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KVM_switch - If you look around you can get one for $20 or so.  Belkin makes cheap ones, but you can get KVMs that control 2, 4, 8, or 16 systems - and they can often be chained together - Avocent has a KVM-over-IP system that can handle over 100 systems with one keyboard, mouse, and monitor.
