1. It depends. Some people like the Matrix Infinity. If you want something that has a feel of an xbox dashboard which the crystal chip would be a great chip. The Bootman software is good IMO. It is v5 compatible and it will work great.
2. To transfer games you can use WinHIIP.
3. Some chips have memory card managers like Matrix Infinity and Crystal chip. It will save you time doing the exploit.
I hope this helps.
