Lol i agree, But this is "Newbie Chat
mlapaglia, if you were being sincere, good on ya!
If you were passive-agressively trying to be sarcastic and infer ANY thing that exactly what you said, well, I think you know what I'll tell you to go do with yourself...
Futhermore, this guy is trying to make his kid happy, and if that doen't stike a chord for you, well, that's your business, but he come out with a straight-up honest and well worded post.
Instead of the RTFM bit, you perhaps could've show him a LINK or two, huh... (you know, like I showed him the Noob Welcome Guide by direct link, etc... see the value in that
NO ONE here, not even Heinrich et all can say they started anywhere but where he (and we all) did. I'm not trying to come down on you, but I take this guy as a breath of fresh air in a world of, "dud, how can i make mi box leet so itll play pstwo games tell me cause my freind did it and i swa it and im cool so i can doo all tht shit" noobs...
Give a good
newbie a helping hand, or don't hand out anything. Read my sig for some insight/
Note to moorsky
: There are a lot of options out there, but notice how the Xecutor 2.6 pops up more than once (due to its price and stability)...
Learn more about the BIOSes, and xbins, etc., and feel free to ask a few more questions before making an order (or for that matter, where you order from, and if you wan't a hard drive upgrade and how big, etc...).
And a Xmas 2004 era box OUGHT to be a 1.4 (or maybe 1.5) as you surmised.
If you want to know for sure, all you have to do is open the case as look at the text on a certain chip (the video encoder chip, if it says "Focus" you have a 1.6).
