I've got an Xbox and I want to hot it up. Any suggestions? I think i'm going to chuck in a mod chip, really big and fast hard disk, more RAM, faster CPU..... Is this going to be possible with the Xbox or will games stop working with a faster CPU etc.
Can I just treat it like a PC and beaf all of it up? Could I chuck in a SCSI card and run a 15,000 RPM hard drive on it......any ideas? I've never opened my Xbox up so I don't know what's in it
If you buy an xbox, you should be allowed to do whtever you want with it, if the mod chip where just a bios, then that is not iilegal, and I do not believe a mod chip itself is illegal, it is what you do after you have it that is, i.e. playing copied games that you rent for a day from blockbuster
If you wanted to mod it and just make it into a PC, it is your hardware, do with it what you want, just dont use illegal games.
If I was to (say) double the RAM in my Xbox would it improve anything? All the games for Xbox were designed for the standard amount of RAM installed, would the Xbox simply ignore any extra RAM I installed?
I cant really remember the inside of an xbox as i aint seen one for so long, but its not simply a plug in more RAM and play like a PC is - otherwise we would probably all run Xbox's instead of PC's

Originally posted by Trifolic Blue, the 4 articles you posted said nothing about having mod chips illegal. Just the distribution was illegal, and if they were used unlawfully..
Personally I see nothing wrong with souping it up if you want it to run faster and what not..
With all do respect that is just BS semantics.
In order for someone to posess one, someone else had to distribute it. By buying one you are participating in an illegal act no matter how you try to sugar coat it.
