I do not think using your mouth would generate enough pressure to get much dust out. You really need a can of air or a low pressure compressor (too high and it will damage the computer components). I use Metro Vacuum ED500 DataVac 500-Watt 0.75-HP Electric Duster: Electronics myself as it is designed for electronics.

It looks like you only meet or a bit above minimum requirements on this game. I am wondering what type of Monitor you have as well.
I was wondering the same thing. I would imagine skyrim would use 100% of the cpu on a duo core.
Yeah it would use a bit.

I think like writhziden, it needs a good cleaning out with compressed air or Duster like he linked too.

That or your graphics card is in need of replacement.
