Excessive Heat Caused by Computers

With the excessive heat socal is currently experiencing, I have found that the room in my house with all the computers is always extremely hot compared to the rest of the house. The a/c appears to be working, but I have reason to believe that the reason the room is so hot is because of the computers. I have two fat Dell Dimension 8100's running 24/7 and a laptop. Could this be the root of my problems?

They're probably putting out about half the heat of a standard space heater, or about 600 watts.

They do tend to put put alot of heat, open a window and get a fan or something if you want it cooler.
