Can a mining rig be used for some other purpose if you get out of mining? And i'm not talking about playing games with the graphic cards etc. But what else could the rig be useful for?

Does anybody have a serious answer?

Thanx.

Depending on where you are, the heat generated can be used for heating purposes.

There are some *@home projects capable of using nVidia GPUs. Dunno about ones using ATI cards.

You could do shading for a major motion picture firm.  If you look really in depth into OpenCL, it's being used for more and more.  Not the least of which being virus obfuscation :X.  GPU's can run circles around CPU's for encrypting files and hiding them from view so a new era of highly advanced encrypted viruses is around the corner.

So... you could get viruses even better.

The OTHER implication is that as OpenCL is more widely used, it can do some pretty sweet shit. 

One possibility is SQL select statements.  If you have applications running high volumes of them you can get a 20-1000% increase in productivity under load for database applications that are heavily referenced.
