I've always used xecuter's, but everyone will have their own preference.

It's worth thinking about a no-solder installation, as they are a breeze to fit. There are several out there from different developers, definitely worth keeping in mind.

Once you have it up and running with the latest bios and XBMC on your HDD it really doesn't matter a hoot what kind of chip you have. ;)

it seems to me that getting a chip = putting xbmc on you box and streaming vids, if all this can be done with a soft mod for free why bother with chips ???

dude you dont stream anything you chip your xbox and you also put in a bigger hdd (mine has 120gb) then you download xvid's etc and ftp them to your xbox in your sitting room, allowing you to watch films/tv programs from your sitting room instead of from your computer.

Can also download any xbox game and ftp it to your xbox.

thats why so many people chip there xbox.

I have very limited knowledge about electronic soldering and have managed to fit an Excutor 2.6ce to my box WITHOUT blowing it.

Do a lot of reading on other Xbox forums amd take your time, its worth it.
