A Softmodded xbox can do everything a Chipped xbox can do,it just requires a bit more work.A Modded xbox can run Unsigned software such as emulators,So i can play:

Sega Megadrive
Atari 2600
MAME
NES
SNES
Nintendo 64


I Can also play Backed up games,And its also a mad media center,Read more here.

Thanks for the opinion btw,yeah i like the way that last xbox is done.

Not a strong enough media center in my opinion. I have quite a few files that the xbox just can't crunch.
Anyway, I've never really cared for case modding. I have two soft modded xboxs, one with a 200gb hard drive.

It's pretty handy to take around with you, because theres so much stuff to play with, without needing to bring a bunch of discs.

Going the extra mile with xbox modding is pointless. The most I would do is soft mod, bigger hard drive, and a clear case. LEDs are annoying, the LCD isn't all that useful (in my opinion) and the only downside to not using a mod chip is being forced to lock the hard drive.

when it comes to consoles, so far I have been happy with what comes out of the box

I like the silver and blue like in the picture but I think with any LED colour it should look pretty sick.
