Why not go with the Messiah 2?
I ordered one from Hackers Hardware for $39. Hard to beat that price. They tell me no stock until Nov. 26th and that noone has them yet. Was just curious. I am sure Messiah 2 will not be $39, so I think Magic 3 will work fine for me. Hey, I have 2 apple chips sitting here that I could not install for some damn reason. Never had issues like that before and ruined 3 PS2s! Crazy world. So, I got a clip for Magic as well :)
