    I am building a home server. I am running Win 7 Pro on my desktop and will be running Win Server 2008 R2 on the server. My monitor has a DVI and VGA port. Is there a way that I can connect it to both and switch between the two?

    check out kvm switches; those should do the trick.

    yes.

    It is called a KVM switch. You use one set of monitor, mouse and keyboard. The switch is available to switch either 2 or 4 sets of PC. Got one myself as I used to run 4 PC concurrently.
