Hey, I need an xbox mod chip, but I need a point in the right direction. Also need a harddrive, any opinions? And one more question, will video games really mess up my big screen tv? Cheers, Pat.

http://www.xbox-scene.com/ is a good site, I go there every once in a while, I'm gonna mod my xbox soon. As for the big screen tv question, i guess it depends on how old it is, my friend has a year old 57" sony Wega, and gaming hasnt hurt it at all. Mind you, any time we leave it paused for an extended period of time, we shut the tv off, so that might help

edit: seems Jersey beat me to it lol

What the others said.

I bought a Xenium Ice chip about 2 years ago. Still runs great.

Video games don't hurt big screen tvs, unless you throw the controller at the screen or projector.

There's only One way a video game could really damage Any screen.
If you had a very old CRT TV or a modern plasma TV and you played nothing but bright, colorful video games (think mario bros.), your TV would begin to dim and wash out slightly faster. The same thing would happen if you watched nothing but cartoons.

Of course the difference would be microscopic. You'd replace the screen due to something else breaking or because it's old long before you'd need to replace it from fading. Unless you're a shmuck and bought a plasma TV, at which point it'll turn to crap soon without the help of video games.

Outside of that, it's down to a case of the gamer throwing things at the screen in rage.

xecuter3 with the rebuild pcb. $60 and takes some moderate soldering skills if you do it yourself. Nothing too impossible and the results are spectacular.


xbox scene has all the info you need. Here is the step by step x3 install. Fool proof and takes you all the way.

I do softmods on xboxes. Here at the shop we softmod 2 or 3 a week usually. Not too often have I been asked to do a mod chip instead as the only real differance is without a modchip you cannot play on Xbox Live.

But if you insist on a mod chip the xenumice is the one to get. As for hard drives, anything you can get you can get your hands on should work.
My xbox currently has a 120 gig WD in it.
