Computers consume about 100 to 400 watts depending on level of usage, and yes, that all goes into heat.

I was unable to get the "Join Team" link to work for me on the SGU team for SETI, so I "hacked" the link.  If you're logged in to your SETI account, you should be able to join by going to this link: http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/team_join.php?&tnow=1290936261&ttok=8ab4b777b6c437e85d21982a891ebe34&teamid=135140

Depending on the hardware and the usage scenario, power draw can be anywhere between ~20W to approaching 2kW (e.g. mini-ITX Atom system at idle vs. overclocked dual-socket system with multiple overclocked GPUs at full load). But yes, most people's desktop computers would consume between 1-400W depending on usage. And almost all of it goes into heat.

I'm with you in spirit but changing stuff just brings me to dead ends.  I'm doing cosmology and seti.  I wish I could do all of them.  They should do it on smartphones when they finish charging. 

This program is perfect for someone as dumb and lazy as me who wants to do something for something.  The hum of the fan on my computer is me helping science well I look for the perfect set of boobs on the internet.

How much computers would you need to heat your house? I'm imagining a world where heating is payed for by the calculations performed by the computers...

Nobody's folding anymore?

Well, it's fair enough. But I acknowledge, that if you are enough of a power user to have a computer consuming more than 4-500W at load, then you'd probably know.

Kinda glad for the necropost, or I wouldn't have encountered this thread. I usually leave folding@home on whenever my PC is on. At least now I can be part of a team!  :)

Fired up Boinc  for the first time in years last week and also installed it on two computers at work. Think I'll be running only Rosetta.

Mine are still running but I'm not part of any team. Doing SETI, Einstein and Enigma.
