What to do with a "fast" PC?

post #1 of 57
Thread Starter 
After building my sig rig I feel like there are so many potential tasks I can do with it but I don't know what else to do.

So far I've used my PC for gaming, converting/burning movies, playing music, and internet, but I know there is more that it can do. I haven't put photoshop on it yet but plan to pretty soon. I also want to eventually use it to edit HD videos.

Overall, I'm just asking for suggestions as to what else I can do with my computer that will provide some entertainment and make me feel as though I'm using it to its potential. Also, what things, besides the things I listed, do you guys do with your PC's?

I run Snow Leopard and watch Netflix at the same time. I used to play Star Craft II but then that got boring.

Have you ever heard of fractals before? Provides a great test for your rig and you can make some awesome designs in the process.
