Save up for a new one. Xbox 360 will probably have a price drop and and upgraded hard drive coming soon if the rumors are true.

I would recommend buying an 'inner cooler' when you buy yours because they have a tendency to over-heat and break. I have an inner cooler and never have any of the problems many people seem to report.

If you buy the 360 new there should be a guaranteed warranty from Microsoft (free of charge) so long as you don't modify the console, so don't let the store sucker you into paying for one. But, I would still ask if the console has a Microsoft warranty just to be sure.

Yeah I'm pretty sure if you buy new they have a 5 year warranty.

I bought an Elite, but I would suggest buying a new one and plus if you get the RROD you have a 3 year warranty on it.

Get a new one. The older ones have an average 17% failure rating. The newer ones are much more reliable. Just save up the extra $40 or $50 for a new one.

It doesn't matter if you agree or disagree... As long as I don't bore you and I spark a moment of thought, my goal is achieved.
