Is it possible to use the new Xbox 360 Slim Power Brick to power a graphics card? I have a DELL Optiplex GX280, and my PSU can not handle a decent card (I currently have a Powercolor 5450).
I found a mod here:

Look in the description for diagrams.

But my power brick is 120W, 9.86A, is it good enough to power a graphics card. The connector is also different. There's only two connectors in the plug while the older 360 power connector has 6.

And how would I wire it compared to the older mod?

Well I'm no expert but that sounds awful risky to me. I would say go to newegg an order a new PSU for $60.
