Question on Power Supply

Does anyone know if I can use a power supply from a console made for a different region of the world, Egypt, on my console built in the USA. I know Microsoft recommends not using the power supply that was made for the USA but I was wondering if I could use a power supply that was built for the area I am in. I know that games bought in the USA will  not work on consoles built for here and vice versa. I read that the power supplies are basically the same, from Microsoft's FAQ on it's Xbox PSU's, and that the dimensions are slightly different. Can anyone say with certainty, or best guess, if I can do this?

Thanks

I highly suggest trying the get a PSU that is made for your country, the difference between mains voltage in Egypt and USA is very high (Egypt = approx. 230v, USA = approx. 120v), if they were similar I'd say maybe you could.
