OK, so I just added more memory to my PC (thanks Guru. While I was installing I couldn't help but be overwhelmed by the amount of dust in my computer tower. This can't be any good for the system.

So the question is, can I clean this the same way I clean my keyboard and use a pressurized air can? Or should I have this done professionally?
