Default i will buy xbox soon, is the chip good enough?

sponsored links

hi all, Im new to xbox and Im gonna buy the pal version of the xbox soon, just wondering is the chip good enough so that I can have my xbox mod without thinking of any newer chips? I heard that you can even update the bios etc, but as Im still new to xbox if anyone can give me some suggestion would be great. thanks all

I would suggest that you get the X-ecuter mod as it's only one wire to solder and 9 holes to drip solder into. Once this is done you can play any backup games and even swap the hard disk with this mod without having to flash the bios and then remove the mod.

Seems to be the best route at the moment. I personally got one of the earlier chips (Enigmah final) but I currently have no intentions on swapping out the hard disk.

i would get an openxbox (PC-BIOXX), or xecuter. depending on the price. with the openxbox you are guaranteed the future with mods, and you can put an evolutionx2.3 or the new xecuter bios on it to make it have all the functions. 10 wire install though.
