    You can't put xbox games on those drives, only media files, the 360 won't save to it.

    You could do a few things for a harddrive for it:
    1)Wait for the 250gb official drive to get a good deal on it (or just pay the £80ish asking price)
    2)Buy an official drive meant for older 360's and remove it from the casing and slot it in (or buy a slim harddrive casing from somewhere), size doesn't really matter doing this as long as its an official drive
    3)Make one yourself buying one of the set types of western digital scorpio drives (would need to check a list) and following a guide online, etc, quite technical path to do but could work out cheapest of all around £30ish

    For 2 and 3 there are videos on youtube for them.

    There are many guides on youtube on how to fit the OLD 360 HDD to a new 360 SLIM.

    You basically take it out of the case

    And for the XBox Live you can sign up when making your profile or on the main menu afterwards. Handy for keeping track of your achievements and downloading your profile on someone else's XBox. I would reccomment using a usb stick to store your save files and profile which makes things easier when playing at a friends, for example.

    You will need to pay for the Gold subsription should you wish to play online and make use of the service.

    xbox 360 allows the install to USB pen, of games, but only supports a max of 16gb per port, about 14.4 formatted

    still enough to install a game or two though
