About 16 hours or so. My bother comes round and goes on my PC early in the monring, i go to work once my brothers finished, my flat mate goes on till the evening i come back from work, kick off anyone that maybe on my computer. So overall it's on nearly 16+ Hours a day playing games.

All day. Unless I have nothing to download and I'm going to be gone for a long time (a day at least) my PC remains on. Rarely rebooted too.

A few months ago I checked my internet connection stats and I had a connection time of almost 2 weeks.

8-16 hours ;-) only when I am at home, my cat can't use a PC (yet).

My PC was on 24 hours downloaded from emule and torrent few times years ago.

My network connection says 4 days 12 hrs. But I always turn my monitor off when I'm not using it.

Depends if it's the weekend/holidays, if I'm at school and/or working afterwards.

8-16 hours on weekends and holidays, less than 8 with school and work.

Mine is on constantly, but now I think with the 1000W PSU, I should probably turn it off more since the energy bill is going to be enormous. :( :o

The PSU isn't going to draw more than it needs. In all honesty you'll probably not hit more than 500W when gaming. I wouldn't think it would draw more than 250W max just sitting there.

Lets do some math!

Lets assume, on avg, he actively uses his computer about 6 hours a day..

So lets look at the energy and money wasted keeping his computer on the rest of the time.

250 watts, for 18 hours. 356 days a year

thats 1602 KWHours a year

say, 10 cents a KWHour , thats $160 a year.. or $13 a month you are paying extra.

Superklye said that he might start turning his computer off now that he has a 1kw PSU. I was just letting him know that he wasn't going to be paying much more than he was already, if any more at all. I know all about the cost of electricity.
