1 Computer, with 2 monitor and 2 keyboards

I have a need for a standing work station right next to my sitting (normal) station.  I would like to use the same computer, but would have a different monitor and keyboard... but the same computer.

The other tricky thing is that my sitting station has 2 monitors, but my standing will only have 1, not sure if that matters

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Two USB keyboards and Mouses will work no problems.
Two monitors are easy. Just set them to "Duplicate these displays" in control panel.
Two monitors plus one monitor is a bit trickier. You could use a splitter to drive two monitors off the one graphics port but getting things to display on the correct monitor may be a problem.
Another option is to use three graphics ports and manually set which monitor/s to use before you change from sitting to standing and vice versa. You could probably write a script to do this at the click on an icon.
