Hey guys,

I want to buy a 2 port DVI-D switch, with no audio or USB attachments - just the DVI switch. Reason for this is I want to be able to toggle between my PS3 and PC DVI inputs for one of my monitors.

I'm having trouble finding a cheap one in NZ, all the ones I find are $100-300 because they have audio, usb, ps/2 sockets as well.

That's an aussie version, and if I cannot get one in NZ for an equivalent or cheaper price I'll probably have to have a friend forward that one to me.

Any help locating one would be appreciated,

Chris

I have no idea what that is, so I'm going to go with no I don't need it. If I was to buy the HDMI to DVI adapters it would cost me $90. Hence looking for DVI ones

Adapters are $30 at DSE. Didn't consider importing them through eBay, good point there. 

DVI-HDMI is $9 each at Adratica, and an HDMI switch off Trademe for $8 (all prices not including shipping). Bulky, but cost efficient. 

Thanks for the advice

$4.40 US: http://dx.com/p/dvi-d-to-hdmi-adapter-743

Free shipping, but it takes a while.
