The thread concerning PS3 vs PC kind of starteled me. Seems most people use their PC's for games a failry large portion of the time.

Personally I couldn't even imagine contemplating the above question as 75% of the stuff I use my PC for just couldn't be done on a console.

So roughly what percentage is the top 5-6 things you use your computer for. As an example here would be mine.

Work would break down like this.
CAD - Specifically Autocad & MDT - 65%
Internet/Mail - 20%
Word/Excel/Access - %5
Misc 5%
Gaming 5%

Home
Internet/Mail - 30%
DVD Authoring/Burning 20%
CAD - 15%
Gaming - 15%
Misc - 15%
Word/Excel/Access - 5%

40% - Games (Mostly Counter-Strike Source)
40% - Digital Video Recording/Playback (nearly 100 gigabytes)
1% - Email (Gmail Rocks!)
5% - Homework (in final college semester)
5% - Digital MusicMP3 Player (Yahoo! Music Unlimited)
8% - Internet Surfing
1% - Typing AMD Fanboy messages on this board
