I know i have to get the Gold membership etc BUT my question is what does it cost to run?
Do you get billed by minuet?
Will i there be any hidden costs or scary bills looming if i join and play for ages or with people from other countries?
I have looked hard but no one mentions it anywhere.

Also I've decided on the wireless 'N' Network adapter is this OK or is "hard wired" a better set up?
So any advice or opinions would be great, i should be up and running live by tomorrow hopefully. :D

I think its $50/year. You can also buy cards at Walmart or a game store and pre pay for it. They got like 1 month, 6 month, 1year cards ect. Once you redeem the card you can be on as much as you want. My xbox broke and microsoft gave me a new one and they also gave me a free year of xbox live. Before that I used to just get the cards.

sometimes one year gold member ships go on sale for $30.

I would say wired would be better than wireless but i have never compared

I paid $60 CDN for the 12 month live gold membership, came with a little keyboard and headset. No hidden fees on xbox live, but check with your internet supplier, sometimes they set limitations.
