Go watch this video, this guy does some really cool stuff with his Mac. Other than that I can not help you too much because I am a Windows user. Hopefully no one will take this video link off because it is actually relevant to the post.
These are some softwares I use. Caffeine - Keeps the OS from going in sleep mode. Camouflage - Hides all the icons on the desktop in just one click. Good for a cluttered desktop BumpTop - 3d looking desktop. Looks great and really good for organizing files and folder Google Chrome - I prefer it because it is a lot faster than Safari IMO.
These are some games I have on my Mac.(No BootCamp) Call of Duty 4 MineCraft Bioshock Counter Strike Source (Steam)

You'll probably want smcFanControl to make sure the computer doesn't get too hot under load.. That's all I can really think of.

If you're willing to spend a few dollars, I'd highly recommend CleanMyMac to remove your system junk and uninstall programs.
BetterTouchTool is a great program which gives you the equivalent of Windows 7's "Aero snap" while allowing you insane amount of customization with your trackpad, mouse, and keyboard.
Perian is a Quicktime plugin which will allow it to play nearly every video codec (all that I've ever thrown at it.) Some people like VLC Player, but I prefer to have only as many applications as I need.
Growl is a great notification system which you can install on several computers and monitor from any one of them, if you wish. It's not intrusive and you can choose which applications use it, the look and feel, and much more.
Pacifist is a great shareware "unpackaging" utility which probably sees most use from people who want to repair an application without doing a complete system repair. (It allows you to access all the files on your Install discs in an easy format).
If you like chatting with friends, I cannot more highly recommend the Adium chat client. I almost never use iChat due to Adium's customization (love having the ability for it to remain open over other windows) and it's flawless at managing vast numbers of accounts. The only added functionality I might like to see is Google/Yahoo video support.
This is where Skype comes in. Free video calls to any other device with Skype installed, and free audio-conferencing. There's a lot more you can do with Skype if you're willing to spend some money, but most people just use it for chatting with friends around the globe.
Those are just some of the applications I've found most helpful, and I'm sure if you'd be ask more specific about what sort of applications you want the folks around here could give you much better suggestions than mine. Hope this helps!
