    I'm in a need for a USB Hub but not sure which one to get. DX or Ebay would be the best place to get but other places that ship to Bosnia would be fine too.
    The other thing that i need is an HDMI Hub... or is it called a HDMI Splitter? Have 2 HDMI devices (PS3 and PC) but only 1 HDMI port in my monitor, and its really inconvenient to plug out the HDMI from my PC to my PS3. If someone could recommend me some of the hubs that would be great.

    EDIT: Ohh and i have an DVI port so a DVI to HDMI adapter would be fine too, but i'm not sure how the picture is gonna look. I learned that transforming VGA to DVI makes interference and gives weird horizontal lines but not sure if its gonna be same if i converted DVI to HDMI (VGA is analog signal and DVI is digital so that's why it made the horizontal line. Meanwhile DVI and HDMI are both digital which should work fine then?)

    Depends on your budget, too. Good and cheap or high quality?

    If you want an HDMI 3-Way then get the cheapest one from Hong Kong / China as it works flawlessly but keep in mind when changing there's a button on the device you need to press.

    You can get DVI-HDMI cables. They work fine since the digital signal is almost identical. On the other hand, dual link DVI-D has a higher bandwidth capacity than HMDI 1.4a (or so I've heard), but I get he impression that your monitor isn't 144Hz or 4K resolution so you won't see any difference from DVI and HDMI 1.4a.

    I don't know about HDMI splitters though, so I'll defer to WiiCube for that :3

    I got this one a year or so back (think it was a poundish) and to this day it has no faults other than the odd design.

    Cheap and good would be the one that i need. What would high quality mean? All i need is another socket for the other HDMI cable so i can just cycle to the other device without unplugging the HDMI cable from PC to PS3(I have 2 HDMI cables, 1 for PC and 1 for PS3), nothing else.
    If the one you posted can do that then its good enough for me. I wouldn't want that my screen quality degrades thou.

    By 'high quality' one with a better design, more ports and a remote control to switch the HDMI ports, otherwise you're getting more or less the same package.

    Ohh, no need for that. Guess i'll getting the one you linked. Thanks.

    And guess i'll need 3 HDMI cable? One from the monitor to the HDMI thing, one from PC to the HDMI thing and another from PS3 to the HDMI thing?

    Just get the cheap HDMI cables from Amazon, or your nearest equivalent. If you're paying more than $10 for a cable (unless you're doing 144Hz or 4K resolution), you're being ripped off. Gold plating etc do nothing to improve the digital signal.

    No, should be fine. A quick google suggests the cables for both are identical. The only thing that 1.3 doesn't have is 3D and 30Hz 4K support.
