system uses about 215w-225w when folding so it's not too bad. Like leaving a few lights on.

Have you never heard of folding@home or something?

You guys know that turning the microwave on is more power consumption then a PC. I think.

Well yeah microwaves are usually 800+ watts at least. But you operate them for a few minutes at most.

Anyway 200 watts isnt too bad...things are only getting more efficient as well.

This is probably true, but honestly i see no reason to run my computer 24/7 especially when it is putting out over 90F heat into a small apartment. Heck its already hard enough to keep my apt cool with the laundry room below me. If im gaming i can bring my apartment up from 60F to almost 70F in just a few hours.
