Default Split/Share Monitor

I have two PC's set up with the monitors side by side. I was wondering how I could hook one monitor to both PCs so I can run dual monitors at times on one PC and then switch it over to the other when I want to use both PCs.

I'd still like to use seperate keyboards and mice for the two PC's. Can I just use a KMV switch for just sharing monitors?
