my room that i have my PC in is quite big, but my PC when under load produces a lot of heat, just like any gaming machine. and can easily make the room a comfortable temperature.
my PC has a 750w PSU, i7 920 that is overclocked to 3.8Ghz (so does create a lot of heat) an 8800GTX, which is a power hog, and creates a lot of heat under load.
I'm pretty sure that it doesn't max out the PSU.
so how energy efficient at heating up a room is a PC compared to a 2KW electric heater?

i think so, i mean i have 2 Machines in my Home Office, i have a server which is always on 24/7 and my notmal everyday PC which is on nearly all the time. alot of the time when i walk into my home office it's like an oven in here, but tonight when it's something like -1C outside 1 server doesn't seem to be doing a great job at keeping the room hot. so i'd have to go for gas central heating :)
