    I was wondering how to link two monitors connected to two different computers. Kind of like a two monitor setup to one pc, but instead two pc's

    You don't.
    You can use two monitors on one PC with 2 connections on 1 or 2 video cards or one monitor on two PCs with a KVM switch. I use one of those.
    Two monitors each connected to a different PC can not be linked together. You can't "daisy chain" monitors.The monitor receives its input from the PC it is connected to. If a monitor is not connected to a PC, then it is not able to get a signal from that PC.
