Alright after about 4 days of hard labor I got my mod chip installed and the bios updated. Now I need to buy a new hard drive.

I open the frys add this morning and what do I see?

A 200 GB Ultra DMA/100 Hard Drive Retail boxed. serial #3483523 Only 119.00 after rebate. This sounds like a great deal to me. I've seen non-internet sources selling 120 gb for more then that.

It doesn't have 8mb cash and all that fancy stuff. I heard the xbox won't even take advantage of that. Only problem I see is that its 7200 instead of 5200. I hope it doesn't get too hot. Also, i don't know if it's lockable. The list doesn't have this one on it.

Also, can slayers 2.1, or Evox format this large of a drive? I believe I just add another drive named G:


Scratch that it does have 8mb buffer. I can still use it right.

Thanks guys.
