    Since my living room OLED TV has become the PRIMARY gaming display in my house, I decided that I HAD to see if a BFGD from ASUS could replace my trusty OLED.

    Buy ASUS PG65UQ on Amazon: lmg.gg/8KV1p

                                      What keyboard/mouse setup is that? I hooked up my gaming PC to my 65 inch LG C9. Currently I use a wireless keyboard and a wireless mmo naga mouse. The problem is what to rest my mouse on. I have been using the arm of the couch. I prefer to sit on the left side of my couch but since I am right handed I am forced to sit on the right side of the couch. I saw your keyboard/mouse set up and thought it might be a solution. Thank you.

                                      Edit: I paused the video the moment I saw your keyboard/mouse set up and posted the above comment. After posting the comment I played the remainder of the video. Near the end you lifted up the keyboard. I paused it and barely got the name, Roccat. I Googled it which lead me to similar keyboard/mouse set ups. I am ordering one off of Amazon now. I can’t thank you enough. You have significantly improved my gaming experience. Thank you, sir!!! You have earned a new subscriber.

                                      Edit 2: If anyone is interested I purchased the Corsair K63 because it is wireless.

                                                Lol you can tell that Linus literally expects ASUS to just listen to what he has to say, just because he's Linus.

                                                  Man... I can't be the only one who knows how BADLY we need a Switch Pro am I?? We NEED a more powerful Switch that uses actual newer Nvidia tech that is capable of 4K for at least simpler games. I honestly don't expect reliable frame rate 4K for the super complex games like you'd see on PS5, but for simpler Eshop stuff, 4K should be absolutely doable with a hardware upgrade to the Switch.

                                                    So the first boneheaded thing should be obvious. Why in the hell did they even bother removing the built in Nvidia Shield in the first place?? For such a high end display, it seems like it really shouldn't be a big deal to include such a thing, and would probably be a very nice selling point in fact. I don't understand it. Why cut costs on a device that is clearly ultra premium?

                                                      So it has variable refresh rate & no analog inputs.... You sure it isn't just a re-badged Samsung 8000 series?

                                                        I don't even want to know how much that thing costs....
