I recently obtained a gamecube from a relative and I have been reading threads on this forum in an attempt to discover for myself the best way to play backups of NGC games. The most discussed way, I found, is to purchase the BBA and PSO. This was looking promising until the issue of lag came into play. Is it really that bad or is it able to be dealt with? I also have seen talk about the mod chip (yes, I can solder), Viper GC. I have not been able to find any information pertaining to what I would have to do after installing it physically into the gamecube. If someone could politely shed some light to the uninformed, I would greatly appreciate it so I can make the right decision as to which direction I should be heading in. Thanks.
