Windows 7: Poor computer conditions = poor gaming performance?

Poor computer conditions = poor gaming performance?

First off, I didn't know whether to post this in gaming or hardware. Sorry.

My question: If there is dust on the videocard and fans or other poor condtions in my computer, can it affect performance in gaming? FPS wise?

Thanks, Andrew.

I think any build-up of dust can lead to poor performance due to heat. And heat can lead to crashes, BSODs, etc.

A small to moderate amount of dust is not likely going to have a noticeable effect on gaming. Most computers have quite a bit of dust build-up inside of them. While it's wise to keep it clean and tidy, i don't think you will really get any huge benefit by obsessively trying to keep it dust free.
