    So I'm picking a new chip for my XBox.... what's a boy to do, Im not sure which of these 3 chips is the wisest choice for me..... $$$ is not an issue.

    Question: is any one of them easier to use a 200 gig hard drive with?


    is one of them easier to flash the bios on or beter yet come with a pre-flashed BIOS?
