    You need to chip it or convert it to a US machine by flashing a US BIOS. If you opt for the latter though, your UK machine effectively becomes a US machine and won't play UK games. There may be issues with chipping and Xbox Live so read up on this first.

    if you get it chipped then you'll be able to play all region games no problem, see www.xbox-scene.com for all the info you'll need.

    If your planning on using xbox live however once you have chipped machine you wont be able to connect for now.

    You will be able to connect to XBL with a modded Xbox.... All you have to do is to turn off the mod chip itself. The X-Ecuter II does this via the eject button but other chips can be turned off via a hardware switch.

    You can still go on XBL with an enabled modded Xbox however but things get a little more complicated. Again, just search around and you will find the answer.
