I'm helping the guy at my nearby gas station with buying a new computer. I found a great deal at Dell for him, and he ordered it. Now the thing is his set up will now have four computers running off a kvm switch. The thing is he's going to need a cable to run from the mouse, keyboard, and vga ports of the back of the computer, to the kvm box. I was looking on Newegg, but was kind of having trouble finding a good set. I was wondering if this would work: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16812107101 . Thanks for any help!

Most all are pretty straight forward. Keep in mind it's 6 foot long. There are 10 foot long assemblies. Does he already have the KVM switch and just needs another cable assembly?

Thanks for the reply! Yes, he already has the kvm switch box thats hooked up to three computers he has now. He wants another computer, and theres one more spot on the box for a keyboard, mouse, and vga cable. I figured these cables would work, but I'm just making sure. The kvm box is very close to where the computer is going to be so there should be more then enough slack..
