If any of you were worried about buying the Elite because you thought it might come only with the 79 drive, I just bought one and it had the 78 drive in it. Flashed fine and everything is working. This board is also the new motherboard. Maybe it is the 65nm? Xbox manuf 3-15-2007. Drive manuf Sept 2006. I bought it at Target in Charleston, SC. Hope this helps.
...and surely you guys can find someone to buy my modded 360 prem for $375 to $400. Someone is buying mine for $400.
