I like to use a filter and a fan to blow air into the bottom of the chassis and an exhaust fan blowing out at the top.  Yes if you can put in more air that can be blown out, a positive pressure will keep most of dust and dirt from entering.  I also like to enclose the power supply, closing any vents in it except for the fan (blowing out) to keep it from disturbing air flow in the chassis.

That's alway's a debate over this issue. I too like a positive pressure because it does keep my pc cleaner for a longer time (providing you have fan air filters) The negative of a positive pressure is that your pc will run a little hotter
