I have a new v10, and a older v7 ps2. I am looking to get one modded so it will work with the hd and such. As of now I am completely undecided on which system to get modded and what chip to go with. I have done some searches and it looks like the matrix infinity chip seems to be pretty popular. I guess if you had the choose between a v7 or v10 and a mod chip, what would you do? I am going to send out the ps2 to get modded, I just want to make sure that I get the most flexable system when it is done. I do have a modded xbox, and that kinda of what I am looking to get into. I would like to get something that is hdd capable with the ablility to play backups and imports. Let me know, and thanks for all the help. I currently have a v4 that has a magic v chip that is not hdd compatable (also for sale). I am just looking to get a more updated and updatable system.
