    The Xbox One X just isn't powerful enough for us, so we decided to take matters into our own hands, creating a sleeper PC in an original Xbox chassis.

      But how do you build a sympathetic sleeper? 4 front usb 3, on the back retain the cassette deck power lead, hdmi, one gigabit rear network port. And keep the shell and heat shield stock.

                                         I would love to see you put a modern system into an original Xbox but with it still being an Xbox and being able to play original Xbox titles with the DVD drive....or modded to play on the hard drive. Anybody can put computer parts into an Xbox console and make it a PC....but you're better then that! Show me an original Xbox with modern hardware that will still play original Xbox discs and new games..... like...."can it play crysis"?
