Default keyboard mouse usb switch

OK I have 2 micro atx cases on my desktop, my server and my workstation, and dual 20.1 lcds. Each lcd has a button and is hooked up to both computers so I can use dual monitors on both by pushing the input button. However, I also want to share my keyboard and mouse so I can push a button to and then use them for the computer I want. Someone please paste a link to a device that would do this that isn't to huge. The keyboard and mouse are both usb but of course they came w/ usb-ps2 adapters.
