Any benefits to having a dedicated PC just for gaming with no software installed at all, other than what is necessary to game (Steam, emulator, whatever), and another system for all your other tasks (work, leisure, experimenting)?

Your opinions please.
 
Some people might like having a separate system for work to avoid distractions and maybe maintain better security. As far as performance goes though, having a separate system for gaming is not likely to improve your gaming performance to any significant degree, assuming you're not installing malware or something.

It only depends on how walled off you want your work stuff.

Some people just have 2 different drives, possibly in a hotswap bay. A full setup on each physical drive.
Change only the drive, one for work, one for games. Same hardware otherwise.
