Video  Hardware Cleaning
I have searched all over the place and cannot seem to find a definitive answer on the best way to get the dust out of the parts inside your case. I have use the canned air on all of my fans and the front bezel, however I am a bit leery of just using the compressed air willy-nilly on all of my computer hardware. Suggestions much appreciated.

Also, if anyone can recommend a good PCI wireless card that would be very helpful as well.

RE: Hardware Cleaning
Compressed air is the best way to go. Every month or so I take my tower out back, remove both side panels, and blow all the dust out of it (probably wouldn't have to do this so much if I had dust filters). As long as your machine is unplugged it should be ok to dust it out. I highly recommend doing it outside. Just don't tilt the can too much.

Something like this should do the job neatly.

RE: Hardware Cleaning
I know that situation.. in India though there's a thing called "Global Easy Buy" on Ebay. On the brazilian Ebay site , just run a search for compressed air and you will get itWink

RE: Hardware Cleaning
Yeah I used the compressed air today and it worked great, still having trouble finding a card though that has decent reviews.
