Do not get the arcade. It's too limited. With the other two you get more memory and you get wireless controllers.

Word of advice. Look for an Xbox that has a 175watt power supply.

This indicates that it has a new "Falcon" CPU and motherboard. These run significantly cooler than the older ones. This will decrease your chances of having a Red Ring of Death error.

Also, they usually have a BenQ DVD drive which is less prone to breaking than the older models.

Here's a link to find out how to tell if it has a 175 watt power supply.

No web browser and XBL Gold is $8 for one month, $20 for 3 months, or $50 for 13 months.

Games I really like are halo 3 and nba live 08, but i'm going to be getting call of duty 4 soon because it looks like such a great game and people have only said good things about it.

I also have a question for you, why would you buy a 360 when the PS3 is clearly the superior system?

Ive got a 360, but I really would like a PS3 also. Playing the new Formula 1 game at a friends place sold me.
