    Launch wii, what's my best bet?

    Alright, so I got my wii on launch day and don't know which mod chip I should go for. According to the wii drive chip database there is a 75% chance my chip is a GC2-DMS and a 25% chance it's a GC2-D2C. Is there any specific chip that would be best for my situation?

    My girlfriend and myself both got Wii's on launch day at the same store, out of the same shipping case.

    My system is a D2A. According to WiiDrives, her's is a D2C. Is this common? Is WiiDrives fairly accurate?

    Good thing I didn't trust WiiDrives. Popped her Wii open to find a DMS.

    its actually a decent system

    usually sets of serials = 1 drive set
    kinda like how nintendo knows how old your wii is, when u reg the serial etc etc, its good science, but not perfect

    Oh, that comment wasn't a bash on WiiDrives at all. Didn't mean for it to come out that way ...

    should have said something like, "good thing I knew when she bought it". Just from the date / location, I knew that it couldn't be a D2C.
