I'm going to buy an xbox later today, should I try to find one thats NOT the holiday bundle. Would it be better to mod + better video out chip. Version 1.3, Or should I not be concerned. I'm going to buy the X-ecuter 2.2 Pro chip.

Thank you very much.

Well my local EB store has about 100 xboxes, and the sales person said that they have a bunch of non holiday packs that the give you the games seperate. So ARE the xboxes made before the holiday pack be v1.4 or less. I'm nervous about getting ver 1.5
I want to make SURE it will work:)
Thanks

Well I purchased my xbox today. I got an older one (they had to give me the game seperate) the manufacture date is 2002-12-20. I know that is has a Samsung
dvd by pictures I seen at Xbox Linux project. So I should have an older model, and be all set.
Thanks TigerHawk for the Halo heads-up (I'm getting it soon)
Thanks

I had got 4 holiday bundles and all were v1.4/v1.5

Not a single one has a Samsung drive..... so folks avoid the holiday bundle if you want to have some hope of getting a sammy
