My System Specs

Default [SOLVED]10+ yr old dell laptop overheating

I'm running an old dell latitude c2duo laptop w/ 32-bit 12.10 ubuntu (see sytem spec) and on occasion when playing videos on youtube the video will become very choppy and unwatchable. If I have a few applications open even the desktop will seem sluggish when minimizing windows and that sort of thing. I'm assuming that the video card is overheating. The bottom of the laptop is rather warm. Will replacing TIM on the heatsinks help? Ill blow out any dust as well while I am at it.
