Default Re: power supply strong enough.

Um, if it got dropped or something hit it or it got would your PC would be screwed...I wouldn't do it. Besides that, you'd have a mess of cables running into the Xbox...

So it's not the best idea...

It's not that a 500 watt power supply wouldn't work, it's that that specific one doesn't give out enough power on the rail that the video card uses.
