    Hello everyone. I am brand new to the Xbox 360 scene. I am familiar with modding other game consoles though. Anyhow I just bought a used Xbox 360 recently. I've been reading up on everything for a while now on various forums, reading tutorials, watching videos, etc. and I just want to make sure I know to get.

    First off, I opened up my case and my DVD drive is a Hitachi GDR-3120L (0046DH). From what I've read this is an easy drive to mod. The only thing I am a little confused about is what SATA card do I need? None of my 3 computers have SATA on-board, so I need to buy a PCI card, right? Are there certain ones that people recommend for my DVD drive in particular? I did a search/looked through the FAQ sticky and noticed most people recommend this:

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16815124022

    However, I don't remember reading whether or not this works for the drive I have. Also, the price seems to have gone up about $10 recently. Does anyone know of anywhere else I can get a good/cheaper card? If not, that is fine... I'll just order it from Newegg. I mostly just want to know what exactly I should be looking for SATA card wise.

    Thanks in advance!

    Alright, thanks for the info. I'll probably go ahead and order that soon. Can anyone else confirm this is the right one though? I just want to make sure before I actually do order it.

    OK well I went ahead and ordered so that hopefully they'll ship it out tomorrow (before the weekend). No offense but I hope trusting newb status doesn't hurt me here :)

    From what I've read though this should work anyways... so thanks again for the info!
