GPU for gaming, CPU for everything else (watching HD movies etc). Although the next generation of GPU's will pretty much have cores that can execute close to full x86 range of instructions. I think ATI already has examples of using the GPU and CPU together for the SETI project so it certainly isn't far away.

EDIT: It is called "Fusion" and is supposed to be here in 2010. Imagine 8 cores at 32nm and no dedicated GPU, I for one am looking forward to not having to lay down any more money on GPU's.
Favourite RPGs of all time: Wizardry 6, Ultima 7/7.2, Fallout2, Planescape Torment, Baldurs Gate 2+TOB, Jagged Alliance 2, Ravenloft: The stone prophet, Gothic 2, Realms of Arkania:Blade of destiny (not the HD version!!) and Secret of the Silver Blades.
