I just bought my Xbox series X a couple of days ago, I am not a big console guy. I prefer playing PC games with a mouse and keyboard but with the video card prices this year – it’s just crazy to spend that kind of money.
Playing FPS games on a controller is really hard to get used to, when I play using a controller I always think that I could have easily hit the target if I were using a mouse. So I set up my XBOX where I can easily switch from the TV to my gaming monitor and autodetect my mouse and keyboard with a click of a button. Though this setup can be done by a wireless mouse and keyboard plugged in XBOX, the problem with that is wired mouse is more reliable especially when playing FPS games.
With the setup above, one-click on HDMI switch to output my XBOX from TV to monitor and vice versa. Another click to switch from PC to XBOX, with this I can instantly change from a controller to a mouse and keyboard. It can even detect my webcam for streaming, I tested this using the Twitch app on XBOX.
What gadgets did I use?
