Productive is not the same as profitable. Your question didn't ask if you could make money from your computer.

And if that is really the question then more than likely the answer is not really unless you have a computer based skill that is useful to others. Other then that you could rent you high spec computer for others to use.

There are a number of distributed computation projects that will make use of your idle GPU or CPU time to help complete massive tasks. Groups like SETI use it to sift through the copious amounts of data they have. There is a large list of projects HERE.

Nope but it's more productive. These are science projects for the greater good. If you could make money out of thin air with minimal effort
no one would be working. Also money would have no value.

My high-energy physics collaboration has a project adapting our software (Geant4) to run particle physics simulations on massively parallel GPU farms.
