Get some gutter half round brackets.

How are you planning to split the PVC?

My first question is why?
Way more work then it's worth.
What's wrong with seamless gutters?

Just trying to clean up the statically charged chips after cutting will be a challenge.
How do you plan on adding down spouts?
No store I've ever heard of is going to be cutting these for you.
Cutting PVC is going to dull and gum up that blade.
Even 4" PVC would make for a narrow gutter.
What's wrong with seamless gutters?

+1

While the plastic gutters are nice for DIY type applications, seamless will work much better and shouldn't be much more.

Call a good gutter company and have them do it. There are certain projects, gutters being a great example, where it is better to just pay someone to do it that does it everyday.

Neat idea...I have actually thought of this but everyone is right. There are too many complications to deal with when you can just do seamless gutters.
