With it you can use your computer power to crunch numbers for science- you choose the different projects you want to participate with. I'm crunching numbers for help discovery cures for diseases and crunching numbers for searching for pulsars etc there's a bunch of programs so when I'm not using my computer when I'm at work or asleep I feel it's been used worth wild
Be careful with the DC projects, they will make your power bill go up both from the extra power to run your system and cooling the house with the extra heat from the system.

I have an asus crosshair IV with the amd six core processor and 16gb of ram, 1tb harddrive for data and 128gb ssd for operating system, 1000 watt psu and 1gb ddr5 graphics card - it's a solid built that can last my 6-10 years in my mind.

What you described above would be a hat build. As another person stated I don't see a graphics card but the mobo, psu, CPU are all good

It really depends on what you run. I have a 45u rack that is overflowing with dual processor quad and hex core Intel processors. When I lived in CA and put up with the ridiculous tiered rate structure it made my bill change by about $100/mo. I stopped when GPU's were starting to take over so I can't say how much juice they draw but something tells me it would be worse. My main workstation is a bit old at this point but a single 6 core i7 and a pair of 2GB 560 Ti's will draw about 3a more as soon as I start a game.

but the OP doesn't have that.. which is my point.. and don't see a jump running it on a few servers so why would he see one with a single little mid range computer.. besides its always good to contribute to the world.. even if it costs you a tad..

I have more fun in the sense knowing my single six core processor and my gpu are crunching information for science ... I'm a huge science nerd so an extra 40-75 a month meh

There's nothing wrong with doing it, just want to make sure he knows it may affect his power bill. I am already $300/mo during the winter just because of the servers and a dedicated AC unit other wise I would still be running SETI.
