Ok then what do you use your computer for?

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%

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