    I know it is possible to share internet, printers, etc, but is there a way to utilize the graphics card on the main pc? i.e. main pc has 128mb card, remote pc has 32mb card. Using remote desktop to connect from remote pc to main pc and then remote pc uses the hardware of the main pc

    A KVM switch will let you control two computers, and there are software solutions as well (which I can't think of the names of right now), but the bandwith needed for one computer to use the other's video card directly can't be done at the moment.

    if you get a KVM, (keyboard, video card, mouse) it may lower quality and the resolution of the computers. just a warning.
