pc / game consoles setup help ideas

Budget (including currency): $1000ish

Country: Canada

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: pc game gaming, video game consoles,


so i think this is the right place to out this topic. it includes pc's and  consoles.


so first off im building a mega pc that can have 2 pcs in 1 case you can look in my sig for the build log of that but long story short one is windows 10 for gaming and other windows 7 for other stuff.


im trying to find the best way to hook everything up. monitors/tv to pc's as well as consoles to the tv and the audio to different headphones.


so where to start... right now i have 2 keyboards, 2 mouse, 2+headphones  to 1 pc. reason why  i have my main headphones at the desk pc 1 and i have another set of mouse, keyboard, and headphones for my bed so i can watch you tube from a tv. i want to keep the keyboard, mouse and headphones on my bed i just need to find a way to hook them to pc 1 and audio to the consoles.


as for the monitors and tv i have hooked to pc 1 and unplug one monitor to use the other pc 2 if need be and the tv is just used for you tube at night. i change the tv impute to got from pc 1 to  1 consoles atm.


so what i want.

Pc1: windows 10 gaming only

2 keyboards, 2 mouse, 2 headsets, 2 monitors


Pc2: windows 7 for other stuff

2 keyboards, 2 mouse, 2 headsets, 2 monitors + a tv



GameCube: + HDMI adapter (don't no what adaptor to buy yet depends on how much i want to spend...)

wii:+ HDMI adapter

wii u: has HDMI out

ps2: + HDMI adapter

ps3: has HDMI out

Nintendo switch: has HDMI out


other systems im going to emulate with roms on the windows 7 pc (will be using original controllers thow) have a bunch of raphnet adapters


so to hook up the keyboards mouses and monitors i would need a kvm seems the best way to go. i found this TESmart HDMI KVM Switch 8 Ports HDMI | 4K 30Hz Auto Scan. and they have a 16 port as well at 4k 30hz

as well as an 8 port 4k 60hrz


for the pcs i don't need the auto scan as 2 pcs will be on at the same time but is nice for the consoles as only one will be on at a time. i found this TESmart Daul HDMI 4x2 Dual Monitor KVM

or this one Portta N4MT42A 4x2 HDMI Matrix 4Kx2K@30Hz +SPDIF L/R 3.5mm HDMI Audio Extractor


i tried to do some stuff in paint to try and help what i want to do. im also going to be putting the consoles in a srver rack but they some different...


also looking for a bluetooth 5.0  over ear headphones that is comfy and has good sound dampening  let me no. i ws looking at the  Sennheiser RS 175 and 185 but i don't no... (i don't have a big head) i would like no mic or detachable and 3.5mm cable if need be. also dont like base but seem like they all have crazy base compared to the Sony wraparound headphones that i love but seems hard to get now...


other stuff: monitors i have now are benq gl2450 (main) and planar pll2410w( sapos to be for my test bench) but i normally will use 1 monitor and the tv as the second monitor. in the future i want to get a better main monitor. don't no if ill do 4k 30hrz/60 but it be nice to plan for it thow.
