I would like to use my iMac for my second monitor, as I am streaming on my PC.

I still use my Mac for other things when I am not gaming on my PC, so I was thinking that it would be more valuable for me to do this instead of buying a new monitor. From my research I was getting mixed answers to this question and wanted to be 100% clear with it.

Obviously, this is a little bit different of an option than using your laptop as a monitor, as instead, you’ll be using your laptop to have complete control over your main PC. And, if you’re looking for a way to use your more mobile laptop to gain access to your main desktop system, this is the way to go. You could probably use a tool like SPLASHTOP to extend your PC's desktop over onto the Mac. (There are various apps that work like Splashtop. I just happen to use this app, so it's the one I have some experience with.). For this scenario, we’re going to assume that you want to use your laptop as a monitor to display your Windows 10 desktop. Go to ‘Settings System Projecting to this PC’.

I know that I need to press 'T' as I am rebooting my iMac to get target display mode activated, but I do not know what cables I need to hook it up to my PC as the second monitor.
