DVI, switch between 2 screens???

I'm trying to find a switch that allows me to switch a DVI output from my monitor, to my tv.

I'm looking for this box, only for DVI, 2-Port HD15 VGA Manual Switch Box - Cables To Go

I can't seem to find anything. Sorry if this is the wrong section, I'm kind of stuck here.

This may work
For only $26.33 each when QTY 50+ purchased - 2X1 Enhanced Powered DVI Switcher | Auto/Powered DVI Switches

It is for 2 sources and 1 screen, but may work for your application of 2 screens with 1 source.

you can try a cable,

Zepher, thank you for the links.... As for the Y cable, I'm not sure that will work since my TV and monitor have different resolutions I don't want them both on at the same time. The other one looks good, I'm just curious if they'd work reversed from how it's intended?

Spinifex, that looks like what I need, I wish I could find it local and with a price closer to the one Zepher found.

Thank you both

If I switch to AMD?
If I were to swap out my motherboard for an AMD board, and put in a Phenom II X6 BE, would my current RAM kit work in it, or are triple channel kits different from dual channel kits other than the triple having an extra RAM chip?
