I'd like to forgo buying a new display for a pc as I don't have room or money for it, so I was wondering if there is some sort of peripheral available that would allow me to route the PC's video to the iMac's display.

VNC. There isn't really a hardware option unless it's a CRT iMac, and then you'd have to do some surgery to get the PC video into the monitor portion. If it's an LCD iMac, it's a total no-go for going straight to the LCD.

VNC is fairly easy to setup and use, and it's totally removable and won't break anything. Wink
