[SOLVED] Recommendation: An HDMI A-B switch

I'm in a situation where I have two pc's, each with their own monitor, in close proximity, close enough that there is not enough space to add a second monitor to one of the systems. I was thinking that an HDMI A-B switch would do the trick provided the A-B switch would allow for dual monitor access on one of its ports and single monitor access on the other. Toggle port A (PC1 has dual monitors), Toggle B (PC2 has 1 monitor). If there is a device that can do this it would solve my issue by not adding to the already limited space i have.

I could simply remove PC2's monitor and use RDP to access PC2 when needed. Still, I would prefer a hardware solution if there's one to be had. Does anyone have any recommendations?

I ended up buying the one suggested above. At less than $20, and with manually switching on top, it can't hurt to give it a shot. I'm also considering having my second system go without a monitor, since I use it infrequently, and just using RDP to look into it when I need to.

Thanks to each of you. You've been very helpful in sorting out my thought process.
