I was just wondering if opening my computer tower and putting a fan near it really helps keep the inside parts from overheating, as long as I make sure to clean out the extra dust with a compressed air can now and then.

I've heard people talking about opening thier computer to cool it down, and i was just wondering if this is ever really effective, that is all.

yes, opening it up allows air flow, which is important to keeping things cool. does your case have any fans, either taking fresh air in or venting the hot air out? you may just need another PC fan or two.
alternatively, you can open the case, and use a smaller (6-8 inch) house fan or clip-type fan to blow fresh air in.
as long as you clean it once in while, it will be no problem.
