How much power does the xbox require to work? I have a MasterCraft 175 Watts Eliminator with a 13'' tv that draws 60 watts, so that leaves 115 Watts to work with but I don't know how much the xbox draws.

Need it fast, I'm going on a trip tonight!!

you should do a quick search, fast..........!

but as you want it fast

+3.3V@4.8A = 14.4 watts
+12V@1.2A = 14.4 watts
+5V@13.2A = 66 watts

total = 94.8 watts,

assuming 80% efficiency (a little low maybe)

around 120 watts

you should have just enough juice I'd say

make sure you turn them on ONE AT A TIME, not both at the same time

the startup current will me many times higher than the nominal current draw

Well the max power output of the xbox power supply is 96 watts.. it probably draws a bit less than that.
