Bluetooth adapter help

Hello Ladies and Gents!

I need some help choosing a Bluetooth adapter to my computer. I can't seem to find any good (latest BT standard and range, etc.) stand alone ones, usually they are also a networking card. The combo cards are all brands I haven't heard of, so I thought I would ask the community (I must be missing them). That being said, my current wireless card is the TP-LINK T9E, which is already very capable. The only reason I want BT on my desktop is so I can game wirelessly (I usually only play single player games offline) and I would also like keyboard and mouse suggestions. The only thing I really don't want is a bunch of leds, unless I can turn them off, or the choices without the lights would not be worth it.

All that being said, related to this is the fact I would like to Miracast to my TV (LG C9) but I can't seem to figure it out, and after many hours am hoping you all can help figure it out.

Before I post all the extra details needed for that, would asking help for that in this post be ok, or do I need to make a separate one for each question (BT, BT KB&M, Miracast)? I think one post would be easiest for all involved but want to make sure.

Thanks for your time.

Order a M2 to PCIe adapter like this:

And an Intel 8260 wifi / bt card like this:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/Genuine-Del...72.m2749.l2649

Done, and enjoy. Bluetooth off of that reaches all over my house using my BT headphones. I can connect my XBox One controller to it. And the built in AC wireless does a great job doing Miracast. I use this same setup on my main rig, and I use my laptop as a wireless second display all the time.

EDIT:
The keyboard and mouse thing would probably be another thread in the keyboard / mouse sections. But I'd definitely be looking at a mechanical keyboard (MX Blue or Browns are both great choices). Mouse, kinda depends on your hand.
