Great to have all your suggestions in practice to cleanup a filthy PC,
But bear in mind that a molecule of dust can cause a memory chip to fail,
So a new 1 inch paint brush is also good to remove the dust spots built
in humid weather, together with the air spray.
Now, would't it be better to avoid the filth...??? Here some tips..
1.- Cover removed PCI Cards slots metal Straps, with electric tape
To prevent dust from entering the pc.
2.- Put a thin layer of air conditioning filter material in the fans
Inputs, because fans sucks dust from the outside into the PC.
3.- Keep your PC away from doors or windows, away from outdoors exposure
specially if you live in a dusty neighborhood
4.- Install your case fan if a place is available.

Possibly, although I have to admit that the last time I cleaned out this
PC, I stole^H^H^H^H^H borrowed my wife's Dust Buster (one of those
handheld battery powered hoseless units) to get the bigger pieces of
filth. Idiot that I am, I forgot to empty the bag when I was done.
