    2 users, 1 pc: multiseat setup


    Hi,

    My PC is used for everything. Games, videos etc. Games, not FPS, just lego games, Trine, Magicka. The GPU is more than capable.
    My wife currently uses her laptop for everything else. However all games are played with me on my PC. Her laptop is a Toshiba 17" which I have upgraded to a 256 GB SSD. The pc and laptop are side by side on the same 5 foot table.

    I saw this video, and I want to recreate a multiseat PC for me and my wife. I think it is better than upgrading her laptop. Also, less items on the same table.
    2 Gaming Rigs, 1 Tower - Virtualized Gaming Build Log - YouTube

    Is it possible to make a PC for her as well using the components below. I don't want to go make anything bigger. If I need to spend more than $500, I might as well make a Intel NUC computer for her if I have to spend that amount.

    My current specs are:
    Intel i5-4570
    Asus Z87i-Pro
    G.Skill Value 8x2 GB
    MSI Lightning 770 GTX
    960 GB SSD
    Corsair TX650M
    Bitfenix Prodigy
    Dell U2713HM

    Thanks

    :)

    2 Phones, 1 PC 2 Users

    I have a vista PC. I have 2 phones (mine and wife) and we have our own accounts on the PC. My phone is set up to automatically sync with the PC every 15 minutes. When my wife is loged in and tries to sync she auomatically picks up my phone. She can change
    the phone and everything is O.K. We then switched user to me and back again to her and then tried to sync her phone again but it had reverted back looking at mine although the PC suite said both were conected to the PC.I / we want it set up that we can both
    automatically sync without picking up the wrong phone etc.

    PC Suite is version 6.83.14.1

    Any Ideas how to do this.

    I can't imagine that working very well at all, unless you went VERY high end on the specs.

    That concept has been around for a while, but I have yet to see it actually working in reality.
