You want a falcon board. look for a 175w rating for the power supply on the outside of the box. These should have a very low rate of failure.

My 360 drive seems like it's about to die. If I put any games in before the dashboard loads up it doesn't even recognize it (just says open tray) and I was playing NBA 2K8 and during one of my games most of the noise disappeared and all that was playing was the sound of the basket hitting the rim and the ref whistles. Even the announcers stopped talking. Anyway I had two questions. I'm going to be getting the HD drive and I wanted to know if I could play the games through the HD drive? Also somebody was telling me that's it's bad to watch movies on the 360 system itself because it ruins the system. Can anybody confirm this? thanks in advance.

xbox everything seemed smooth till the endthe lady said if its been opened , your warranty will be voided, im like wtf since my sh*t was modded. what does that have to do with them selling me a default system, has anyone returned one yet? and does anyone know if i should take out the flashware that my boy put on my 360? i should get the box to mail it back in tomorow, and he said he cant do it till thursday and that hes gonna take someones warranty sticker out there 360. what should i do cause i dont think hes gonna be able to get that sticker within a week?

First off, calm down. Breathe. There have been A LOT of people that have sent in 360s with flashed firmware and did not have a problem at all. There have been plenty of people that have sent in their 360s without the silver MS sticker and haven't had a problem.

If your really that paranoid then go ahead and flash the firmware back to the original firmware. Then just wait and see if your boy does get the sticker.

I modded my 360 with a Blue LED Fan. When I got the RROD I put back in the stock fan. Needless to say when I took the sticker off a lot of the silver came off and didn't look good when I put it back. So what I did was (trying to cover my a.ss) make some scraps with a screwdriver on the faceplate and on the 360 case to make it look like I had a problem getting the faceplate off. That way if they did call saying the sticker had been removed I'll just give the excuse that I didn't know how to take off the faceplate. :D

Ok I have a quick question. I have been having problems with my xbox 360 ( it keeps overheating when it is in an open area and the only game that will work with out me having to pressing the eject button like 15 times is call of duty 4) and I was wondering would it be easier for me to say microsoft to fix it or should I just go buy a new and the xbox is a replacement I got about a year ago when my first 360 stopped reading games.

Should have bought a PS3.

Seriously though, just return it to MS since the warranty is good for three years.

The RROD warranty is good for 3 years. Anything else is under warranty for 1 year and even then I think its still $100
