How about Double tiering the gaming rigs, a group below and a group up top, increased space and possibility for more space per person

as for the peripherals , I recommend Stealseries Arctis 5 headset (It's 90 backs new, and around 70 refurbished, it features decent mic, good sound quality, and good overall build quality. G series Logitech mouse, , wired G4 series, it is the best hit for the back, and Razer blackwidow tournament edition essential mechanical keyboard. Sot thats like 150 backsin peripherals (refurbished ), and nearly top off the line gear. You'll get great compact keyboard, great headphones featuring decent mic, so it's not gonna be a shame to use that mic to stream, + good mouse.

Love your videos, I’ve learned a lot and there so fun and cool to see all the different ideas and fun challenges you do. Keep up the good work Linus.👍

You should put a minibar instead of just a countertop. That gives lots of room to put snacks and drinks that can be quickly grabbed while you wait to respawn without worrying about food and drink near the systems. It also opens up the possibility of doing all nighters or other such activities, whether it be for fun or for charity.

Personally, if you're not loading the entire game library onto each machine ahead of time, I would think 10Gb to each computer would be nice. Waiting for a half hour or more for everyone to download a huge game is a pain and 'might' serve as a deterrent for people. Maybe have some lights that aren't like super bright or super dim as well. I know personally I'm most comfortable in a dark/low light environment while gaming because glare is a pain and makes my eyes strain and hurt trying to see the screen.

As for peripherals, I definitely suggest a headset (in case you decide to play online with others as well), mechanical keyboards, mmo mice (extra buttons are nice to have and they're versatile. I have to use a Naga left-hand because I mouse with left), and maybe a 28-32 inch monitor that can support the max sensible refresh rate that you're likely to see. Maybe even throw in a foot rest of some kind. When I'm gaming I love to put my feet up, get comfortable, and relax.

On another note entirely, if you need people to come play with you I wouldn't mind, but I can't afford the trip to Canada, nor do I currently have nor can afford a passport to fly there.
