Soft mods on GC are a Pain in the rear. To be completely honest if you are going to mod your GC then you are best served getting a qoobSX/Qoob pro.
I have the Qoob pro, and it is by far the best chip I have ever used on any console. Easy to upgrade/flash, strait forward, and easy to install.
I will say though, that you are much better served getting a Wii and modding that, specifically because you can take your Gamecube backups and write multiples of them to disc. You can do this with GC but only up to 1.37gb, wii you can burn ~4.6gb of games, that's a big difference.
If you do decide to contiune with the GC, a BBA is a broad band adapter, you will have to have it to do a softmod as far as I know. Also, streaming games over BBA is a pain. And then, you have to come up with Phantasy Star, and the right version. The Vipercase is what I have, but the lid is flimsy and not near as nice as a real gamecube cases.
all you need for a soft mod is a sd mem card adapter with a sd card & and action reply with the ar mem card. that is easy if you ask me. . . .i know it would be better for a wii but i have to work with what i have right now. . . don't really matter much tho the soft mod stuff i'm using now can also be used on the wii.

..hmmm ok, foundmy.com has some complete replacement cases - looks like they only have crystal though... and as far as the cases go, its now cheaper to pick-up some mini dvdrs from meritline or newegg than to actually invest in a case - I purchased an ICEdcube xecuter case when they first came out - looks cool, but for the money I spent on it, I could have picked up 100 mini dvdrs
Thats true it would be cool to have the case fit normal dvd but the price you pay for the case + shipping i can buy the mini dvd & once there burned its not like i'll need to burn it again. But i hope i'll be getting the wii soon anyway so.
