Xbox case with PC inside?

post #1 of 65
Thread Starter 
i have done a small amount of reasearch into this, and was wondering if it would be feasible. The reason i ask is i was gifted two busted Xbox's and was thinking that i may be able to convert them to a PC and sell to a guy i know who would pay decent money for them, is it viable or just a stupid idea i should let pass?

I'd do it.

I've seen people PC's in PS1, NES, and other weird cases or console cases at that.

Go for it! thumb.gif

Original or 360? Either way, go for it! I would be stoked to see an X-Box with a massive heatsink sticking out, hotrod style! thumb.gif

Many of us have experience modding these consoles, so feel free to ask questions! biggrin.gif

a dremel tool will come in handy

okay it is a 360 pro that is bricked, zip zero nada, and for all my efforts (i am VERY good with trouble shooting) i cant get it to turn on, the only thing is that i want it to look like and act like and xbox untill you boot it, this would mean i would need to modifiy whatever motherboard i am going with, and was wondering if any of you were to buy it how much would you pay if it was say a quad core 2.4GHz 4GB ram rig?

For a PC with those specs, not much, as this is an enthusiast site. You'd have better luck finding someone locally for it.

i would need to go with a flex ATX motherboard to get this to work, however this particular one's graphics are terrible on the upside twin chip quad core so octo core!

Why not go with an older C2D setup? Cheap parts, and great power for a media/gaming rig. This might come in handy if you want to stuff some powerful graphics in there: PCI-E x16 90 Degree Adapter
