#1 - Your question has nothing to do with having a good gaming rig and you know that. Your purpose in title was simply to justify your posting in the "Building, Buying, or Upgrading High Performance PC Systems" thread because it is the most looked at/popular section.

#2 - I turn my computer off at night. There is no reason to leave it running when it's not in use.

My computer is a blue night light / soothing sound generator. Stays on most of the time.

My computer usually stays on for about 4-6 days at a time then it gets a night rest but it really does depends on what going on in my life at the time

Computers, like light bulbs, last the longest if you never turn them off.

Kind of like relationships, never turn her off, or buh-bye....
