Okay, so my mom has agreed to let me get a bba or modem(depending on what I need) at christmas:D! I love Christmas!

Anyways back to the topic, which one do I need if my computer DOESN'T dial up and we have cable? And where could I find one?

P.S: We don't buy from ebay.

Edit: I need a BBA, we found one on some search is $49.99, are their any cheaper ones? (Not using pounds or any other currency)

The BBA is quite hard to get ahold of really. Try amazon.co.uk (http://www.amazon.co.uk) or amazon.com (http://www.amazon.com) depending on your location. But if you want it cheaper try ebay.com (http://www.ebay.com)

Yeah if you are in the UK try using http://www.kelkoo.co.uk/b/a/c_6513_video_games.html - This will search many sites and give you the cheapest price.

Great for finding cheap stuff :cool:

Don't use ebay. I guess $50.00 is as good as it gets?

Um if I may answer your question Isaac.

If your computer does not dial up to get online, you need the Broadband Adapter. Game Stop or Babege's is a great place to get bba (It doesnt matter becasue both modems and BBAs are $40.00 all over US, except in out west they might cost a bit less, becasue ur closer to japan, the producer of BBAs and modems)

I went looking for a BBA few days ago cos I'm a soon to be GC owner. Now I checked out GamePlay (http://shop.gameplay.co.uk/) and they have the modem in stock but the BBA was out of stock. But I emailed them asking when they would be getting some in stock and I found out that they should be available from 2nd Dec.

So if anyone wants to get a BBA I advise you to get your preorder in soon.
