Jacqui, that was worth the read.

Of course it all depends on many factors.

If you have a big case with big fans, you have more safety margin for heating issues than a laptop that has one.

I use high end video cards in a mid sized case, with two Xeon processors. We don't smoke but we had a dog a cat and three kids. The case does get dusty, it ingests air from the front. I usually clean it out once a year.

I've had video cards overheat and die, some have just had failed fans.

I can only imagine that smoking would make a bad situation worse.
