Without answering either question, I would like to add to your list, as I considered this exact course of action some time ago. Finding a decent DVI-D KVM is pretty tough. They are quite expensive and not readily available. Be careful of the ones from Belkin, which have HORRID reviews. I eventually gave up on the idea since my monitor had dual inputs. So, I run my Mac on the DVI-D input and my PC on the RGB input.

That is the "M" part of KVM. For the rest, I just keep two keyboards and two mice on my desktop. A bit of a nuisance, but you get used to it pretty quickly.

My Macs: iMac 27" 3.4 GHz, Mac Pro 3.2 GHz, PowerMac G5 Quad 2.5 GHz, G4 Cube with 1.2 GHz Upgrade
My iStuff: 64GB iPhone 5, 64GB iPad4, 30GB iPod Video, 16GB iPod Touch
My OS': Mac OS X Lion, Mac OS X Snow Leopard, Mac OS X Tiger, Mac OS 9.2.2, openSUSE 10.3
I was on the Mac-Forums honor roll for September 2007
