The xbox360 psu is 12V only (and 5V standby), so no it cannot be used as a computer PSU.

The Xbox 1 PSU's are a no-go either. The 1.0-1.5 supplies have only 3.3v standby (computers use 5v), and the 1.6 supply is just plain weird and does not have any sort of 3.3v supply.

Why not just buy a power supply? It would save you the trouble. Some times it better to not be a cheapo.

no, i want a small power supply, one that doesn't take up so much space b/c i was gonna build a small PC, like real small. i might try to get a shuttle power supply, but i had an extra xbox one laying around.

If you want a small computer than why not buy an external PSU
