    No.. There is a reason that newer power supplies don't work on older systems. Your power supply will not be able to provide the power needed for the 360 to run.

    203 Watt power supplies work on all consoles <---- That is the power supply that you need
    175 Watt power supplies work on Falcon, Opus, Jasper, Valhalla
    150 Watt power supplies work on Jasper and Valhalla
