Is it possible for me to split my PC into 2?

My brother’s PC sucks, and I am sick of him wanting to use my PC, so I was wondering if it is possible to split my PC into 2, so I would connect 2 keyboards and 2 mice, and then 2 monitors.

My specs:
MSI ATI Radeon HD 5970 2GB P2D2G
AMD Phenom II X4 970 BE
8GB DDR3 1333
2x1TB 7200RPM HDD
And I have like 8 USB ports (so I can add another keyboard and stuff)


Apparently Linux can do this, but can Windows?

Go make peace with your brother.

It highly depends on how you want to ‘split it’,please can you explain further?

By “split it” I mean have multiple users use one PC at the same time. So, basically, 2 mice, 2 monitors, 2 keyboards, 1 computer, 2 happy brothers :slight_smile:

Depends on what are brother’s plans on using PC. You could still use bro’s PC as a thin client connected by LAN to your PC. Fat games - no go, but internet, flash, things like that would work. I’m not sure any MS based virtual PC (VirtualBox, vmware) would use separate kbd, mouse if on one PC.
