You could use some compressed air or just use a paper towel to wipe the excess dust. Are you talking just on the outside of the card or inside it as well? If so, you can just remove the shroud and then wipe with a paper towel inside. What card do you have?

Depends..What part is it your trying to clean? PCB or the heatsink?.... if it the plastic casing around the card i would use maybe some rubbing alcohol on a cotton ball.. or a very lightly moist ragg and wipe it off. now it is more stuff like the PCB.. i would just wipe it off with a dry micro fiber cloth. and maybe blow it off with canned air or a air compresser

Just dust off using a soft brush, it won't damage the card.
