^^^Yeah, I can relate because there are, what, 4 versions of XBOX 360 and I'm figuring out which version I have so I can fix it myself. So far the 2 I have seen are on newer ones, whereas mine was the first gen with the worst overheat problem. Dun worry about warranty, I got as a gift and it was a secondhand. I'm fairly competent as I have dealt with fragile computers and electronics before.
Hm...maybe PC wouldn't be a bad choice for me either. The only consoles I do are old school.
