I have 1 Dell 23" S2340 LED monitor, 1 windows 7 PC tower, 1 mac mini. I want to know how I can connect both my mac mini and my PC desktop to the same LED monitor.

GoRla89, if you have a HDMI port on one of your computers, you could hookup one with DVI and one with HDMI.

Can I use a DVI splitter with an extra DVI cable to connect my Mac Mini to the monitor?

No, a DVI splitter is for two monitors.
