Pc In An Xbox Case Project
Posted 31 March 2004 - 12:23 AM
I've read the tutorial linked on this website about putting a PC inside an Xbox case and would like to do something similar:
I'd like to use it primarily for storage, but also make it capable of browsing the internet and playing at least some older games so it doesnt need to be too fast. I'm thinking a mid-range PIII with about 256mb RAM, onboard graphics and sound (for space reasons), network adaptor, a 120gb hard drive (that i have spare) and a plain DVD or CD drive.
Was just wondering if anyone here knows of any other tutorials that I could read through before I start, or if anyone has attempted such a thing themselves and could report on their success/failings.
I have a question to start off with - would a v1.3 PSU power a PIII motherboard? I havent tried yet but they appear compatible, the connectors are the same. How would i connect the Xboxs existing power switch to the motherboard?

|part it out you can get some good money i dont really like the xbox in a pc case. while i do if you dont move your xbox but i do so i would never do it. so do what you want dont ask for our opinion to what to do with YOUR xbox ok?|
First off he wants to put the pc in the xbox case not the other way around. Plus why are you giving him a big deal for asking our opinion? Half the stuff on here is asking for our opinion.

and weeman.... where in my post did i ask for an opinion?
i explained what i was doing and then asked if anyone here has done this before, and if the power supply and switch were compatible with PC motherboards
