The USB-C PD adaptor I use is from my broken RPi4 so it's free.

The S2240T also comes with an audio out jack where I use my old ATH-M50. You can also use a bluetooth speaker with the Raspberry Pi 400.

I installed Raspbian OS then ScummVM to play point-and-click adventure games (perfect for the touchscreen monitor).

The games you can get here or here. Enjoy!
