Well, today was the big day. Our annual garage sale. I thought I would pop my Xbox in the garage and hopefully get a lot of questions and maybe drum up some business.

That did happen as I have a couple neighbors who are in awe of what a mod can do and are bringing me their machines tonight to get started on. But, someone offered me $450.00 for my machine and as much as I didn't want to part with it, I really need the money for vacation. Not to mention my wife would have cut my whoooha off if I didn't accept the offer.

It was an authentic MS crystal case with X3 CE and X3 CP. Blue LED ring, blue LEDs in the eject/power pcb and controller ports. I did however remove my larger HD and popped a 200GB in it. Even though all the lights and the X3 Control Panel were quite a bit superfluous.... I am truly missing the machine....lol.

I'm not positive, but I swear to god I heard "Taps" playing in the distance as he drove off with my Xbox.

So now I am on a mission to find someone who has a spare X3 CE laying around so I can hurry up and chip another machine.

All I can say is my wife better put out tonight....HA

your not the only one..

where my aunt lives, she has this annual garage sale and the WHOLE community comes through all of them.. i set out one of mine, in the dragon case (some of you know what im talking about, its in the forums here), a 1.0v motherboard modded with 128mb ram that i did not to long ago, a xenium ice, 160gb hard drive, and with just that, i was recieving offers in the 400's.. i told them i couldnt part with it, but i had flyers readily available and 20 people atleast had picked one up.. ive gotten a few calls so far, so just sitting there playing nintendo in the sun all day has gotten me atleast 120..

the easiest thing to do would be to go to xs and find some dumb shit that doesnt know what error 16 is and tell them that it may or may not be fixable but you are willing to take it off their hands..

works everytime..

35 dollar xboxes going for atleast 150 when im done with them

HA...LMAO.

Thanks for the input. Definitely needed the laughs.

I ended up finding a cherry Halo LE machine at my local resale shop. This place has lots of cool stuff like older gaming systems, musical instruments, concert tees, and a lot of unopened classic toys/actions figures not to mention dvd's and cd's.

They sell used Xbox systems for $104 which isn't too bad. I had to pay an extra 5 bucks for the Halo LE, but hell....it's an LE right?? The puppy was never opened, came in the original box, still had the original controller too. Only downfall is no Sammy drive (phillips). A friend of mine who doesn't give a crap what drive he has is gonna swap me drives, so that's cool.

All I need now is to find someone with a spare X3 chip laying around. Was hoping to find a good deal/trade on one, but looks like I am gonna have to order from OTBMODS or somebody.

Has anyone ordered from them? How fast do they ship and are they in the US. I'm too lazy to look Wink

60 with Free Shipping...er, well...that meant I WOULD HAVE HAD TO WAIT....lol.

I'm sure I could have dug up a sweet deal online somewhere, but I am an impatient american who wants everything...NOW NOW NOW.

You should share your source with all the users here. I'm sure a lot of them would love to buy $60 Xbox's Wink

flEbay is a great source if used wisely. I've gotten many repair parts and drives from there, and I really only mess with buy it now. If it comes down to getting dirty, and I have to play the auction game, I snipe it. Because I'm a dirty man like that.

You just have to be careful on there. There are scams. I can't tell you how many people i've found selling AID discs. It's really rediculous.
