It isn't really a technical question, but I was wondering that wherever you place your computer, does it affect the PC in any way?
For example, PC's are normally placed next to a wall or something (like mine is), but my parents have their PC placed next to a window, with the backs of the monitor and case facing the window.
I'm a little bit concerned about it, as this is a window where the sun shines into (in the mornings, for a couple of hours). Often I have felt the back of the case and monitor, and it is slightly warm (and the PC isn't even turned on!).
Is this something to be worried about? Like the insides of the monitor and case getting "fried"? Mind you, my parents have had their PC in this position for well over 2 years I would think, and surely by now some damage would have shown - if there WAS any damage to the inside parts.
