Finally got all of the parts in. The HD was purchased last month but I waiting a while to order the SATA to IDE adapter since I was taking a 6 week summer class. DX took 7 working days to deliver it from HK to USA so that's not so bad for free.
SATA to IDE adapter on left, WD GP 1.5TB HD on right.
Note: This is the only SATA to IDE adapter that is known to work 100%. I have tried 2 eBay adapters and an Addonics (sp?) adapter and they are buggy. Use others at your own risk.
Xbox v1.1 w/PC-BIOXX modchip (OLD SCHOOL!). Picture shows the old HD resting on top. I was testing a borrowed Neoya X2VGA box with my Dell S2409W LCD. Final system will be using component to my TV. Although, if anyone has a X2VGA for sale let me know.
