Thanks for your expertise reply, Pizza Pizz. Are you saying then that if this combo does not come with a PSU and if I purchase a 1.6 PSU for USA consoles, then it will work? no incompatibilities?
In your opinion, if you got a good deal on it. Would you get it or would you pass and get a North America NTSC motherboard instead?
a 110v 1.6 psu will work fine - but don't put a 1.6 mobo in an older case
the older cases have 11 screw holes - the 1.6 has 10 screw holes
near the a/v port a short would happen when the 11th screw hole grounds onto the 1.6 mobo resulting in a dead mobo
so be careful
if it was an earlier one then I wouldn't care and gran any region mobo coz it would be less of a pain to mod - no lpc to rebuild and go in any old case I got lying around - plus I could fit a mod on there for a temporary fix - then could get the region or softmod on there, remove mod and tsop it
end of the day if it came from a good reliable dude at a good price I would consider it but me personally I prefer the older ones - from anywhere in the world coz they are much moddable and fit in any case etc......
a 1.6 is fine - just I prefer not to rebuild lpc's if I don't have to and 1.6's have a few qwerky things - like limited bios choice and strange temp display
they are ok but I have sold my 1.6's and kept my old ones coz I like tsop
