    I originally had the thought of using an old PC that belonged to my relative, whack a 200gb hard drive into it, install windows and Utorrent on it so that when it starts up, it runs the torrent program and I can just leave it in the corner to download the stuff. The downside is that the PC was too big and far too noisy and I can't be bothered considering building a new mini PC just for this purpose. Is there such a thing where I can put a HDD into something then connect it to my router and run a program which will allow me to let it download stuff from bittorrent and it continues to do it without me having to leave my PC on?

    I thought you had a modded xbox?
    Most linux distros for the xbox have a torrent client, failing that xbmc has a basic one.
