Dell heating issue

Basically yesterday my Dell Optiplex GX520 decided to crash on its own. I was thinking it was dust, so I cleaned out the system and it crashed again :/. The CPU and the Graphic were pretty hot, while the hard drive and the power supply were warmer then usual. I changed the thermal paste on the CPU and graphic heat sink, it crashed again. I bet its the fan, but I could do with some suggestions on what it might be.
I'm running Windows 7
1.0 GB Ram
Intel Pentium 4 HT
Intel 82945G Express Chipset Family
No Hardware/Software upgrades before or after the crash.
