Is this a joke? I'm guessing that, if indeed you did do that, you messed it up pretty hardcore. XBOXs weren't really meant to be wired into a tower with a separate power supply. Even if you were going to do that, why would you need another power supply? It's got its own. Are you sure this isn't a joke?

Uh huh, I didn't post because I though this guy was kidding. I mean, XBOX? Cut open? Re-wired in a tower?
I can't say I've seen many of these sorts of issues before.

AMD 64 3200 +, 256 mb Geforce 6600, 1GB PC3200 DDR400 RAM, 160GB SATA 7200RPM HDD

Well....he would need a new power supply as the XBOX's I highly doubt could handle an entire PC....
