And, when using the canned air, don't let the can get too cold or you can have a condensation problem.
Is canned air the best solution? Do most people still use canned air? Is there anything more cost effective? Like those cans are so expensive to clean so often you know? My house is pretty dusty, I try to clean my comp every week or two, but the cans add up very quickly.... What do you guys use?

I use an air compressor to fill a small air tank that my dad had laying around. seems to work pretty good and the small tank is portable. also cheaper than canned air
