    Most of you probably took a look at my thread over in the Advice forum, but I've actually decided to go through with this crazy idea of putting a PC and an Xbox 360 into 1 case.

    The hardware I've chosen for this setup:
    • ASUS M4A785-M Motherboard
    • AMD Phenom II X3 720
    • OCZ Platinum 800 DDR2 CL5
    • Sparkly GTS250
    • Seagate Barracuda 1TB
    • In Win 1200W Power Supply - I have it, why not use it?
    • Cooler Master Sniper Black Edition Tower
    • Xbox 360 Components
    • Possible 60-120GB HDD

    First pic to get things started:

    Sick, can't wait to see the build completed! I am not getting a picture of how you are going to do this, but I'm sure it will be good!

    Honestly, I'm not even getting a picture of how I'm going to do this. lol, once I get a good amount of time to install the PC part, I'll be able to figure out the 360 placement! Ordered the last part to completely fix the 360 DVD Drive on ebay this morning, so once that gets here and I have the PC's DVD drive.

    Well, stock would be the original 360 case, so no, its not very stock :)

    In my opinion, a case you use just the way you bought it is stock :)

    Meh, you can buy aftermarket coolers and use them, then the thing you cool is no longer stock ;)

    But removing the guts from a 360 and popping it in a Lian Li aftermarket case makes it non-stock ;)

    Per definition, yes, but in my opinion it is too easy, so too "stock" :)

    I think I get what you mean. If 'you' were to put your 360 in another case, you would go all out and design something unique ;)

    Even more basic:

    Modding is not slapping some custom parts on. Modding is altering parts themselves.

    I could turn the above statement into a giant rant about all the kids nowadays that think they are "modding" stuff when all they are doing is add a fan to a case, but that would be a hell of a hijack.

    You guys done now?

    And to the poster before the flood of off-topic goers, yes, I'm essentially gonna go to town and hope for the best. It seems to be my style!

    Zomg a Sniper? I thought you were going to use a custom case or a huge MountainMods one. I'm extremely interested in how you're going to fit in the 360's components.

    Are you going to use the standard 360 PSU or use an adapter that allows you to use the 1200W PSU on both boards?
