Is it ok to leave my computer on all day?

I have a new Dell desktop computer. Is it ok to leave it on all day long?
And what if I want to leave it on all week, I mean servers are rarely turned off, if at all and they seem to do ok.

I play games regularly and the temperature goes up easily but it is properly cooled.

Your computer will be fine if you leave it on all day.
Actually, I haven't turned mine off for like a month and it's ok. You do have to make sure it's properly cooled because high temperatures can damage your computer.
What I recommend is to keep your computer safe from dust, the main cause of overheating.

Also, make sure you turn off your monitor, because it has a different and more limited life span and it will stop functioning if you keep it on all day.
