Connecting 1 Mouse/Keyboard to 5 monitors and 5 CPU's

What tool would i use for this? I have a 5 monitor setup on my desk with 5 CPU's, Currently I am using 3 different keyboards and mice. Is there anything available to use just 1 mouse/keyboard for all systems. Ive been unable to find a KVM switch that does what im looking for.

Use a KVM switch with enough ports to handle all the devices.  An 8 way one should do the trick.
If you want to keep all 5 monitos then you leave them all connected and the KVM does not control the video.  As you flip to the one you want to control just the keyboard and mouse get switched to that pc.
If one monitor will do then you plug one monitor into the KVM and it will flip with the control.
