Solved Cheap 2 port DVI Switch?

So I've been looking around, trying to find a switch exactly like this (in both function and price) only in DVI instead of VGA. Most of what I can find are horribly overpriced and are KVM (which I don't need, only looking for display switching here).

My setup is a PS3 hooked up to a monitor via HDMI->DVI cord, but I also use the same monitor for my desktop. I absolutely hate having to fumble around in the back of the monitor trying to get the plug positioned right every freakin time I switch (usually having to flip the entire monitor over just to see what position the plug is even in) . I've already got the audio hooked up through a separate system, so only video is giving me trouble... If I can't find a cheap (like sub-$30) switch I think it would be wiser and easier just to use all HDMI with adapters since all the DVI switches are priced at $100 for some reason.

Thanks for anyone who can point me toward a reasonably priced DVI switch!

Not sure where in the world you are, or why you have decided not to buy the one you have linked. I'm assuming it's geographic reasons.

Be sure to check they handle the display resolution you require (a couple of them are 1080p, not sure about the other) if suitable / obtainable.
