I'd keep your hard drive, sell the console, and go get an arcade unit. You'll at least have a more reliable 360.
I'm waiting for the "Jasper" chipset, due later this year: the 65nm GPU will generate less heat and will consume less power, which is a factor for those of us who have to pay our own electricity bills.

Running cooler, it will require a smaller fan and that, in turn, will make the unit quieter.

I am hoping the new chipset is accompanied by a quieter DVD ROM drive.

If I bought a machine with the Falcon chipset today, I'd regret it as soon as the Jasper machines hit store shelves.

I can wait.
