why dont you make an external dvd drive??
yea you should b able to make the psu external, i dont think it would be hard to do, but it would probably be hard to make it look decent

Yes.
You can make the PSU external, you can make the DVD-ROM external, you can even make the HDD external. But these external items take away from the cool factor.

I'd say the best way for you do get what you want, is to make a standard slim box, and make ports on teh back of the Xbox, for hooking up an external DVD-ROM drive. So you won't sacrifice anything.

Search feature is so much fucking better, try it with that google search for xs-scene.

And with a slim box you can keep the mother board and psu where it is.

If you wanted a dvd drive and hard drive is recommend a laptop dvd drive but you could use a normal hard drive.

Mount the laptop dvd above the psu and right side of the motherboard, do the switch, dvd drive ejecting on the other side tongue.gif or you may be able to have the hdd and dvd drive both on the one side.

yeah but you will need to make a switch, buy a longer IDE cable, and add a connector to it

No. The Google search sucks.

It can't find shit.

....and there's plenty of shit on this board.
