XBox Repair

My xbox finally died on me last night. It started making this clicking noise then froze up on me. I unplugged it and let it cool down then it said I had to call Microsoft support in 6 different languages. When I called, they said that my hard drive needed to be replaced and it was going to be $80 to repair. Is it worth 80 to repair or would it be easier to get my own hard drive and do it myself?? I've never done anything like that, so what other things would I need to do it?? And would the saved games and other stuff on the original hard drive be lost, or is there a way to transfer that info to the new one?? Thanks guys.

Replacing the HD isn't hard at all. Hell, you can mod it yourself and get an 80 gig, and boot games off it. Just the cost of the HD.

if you play xbox live you need to get a new box.. once you swap hard drives you will get banned from live when you go online.

Otherwise.. mod it up.
