Can I put my desktop computer tower in this cabinet?

I want to remove the two glass doors in the middle and put the computer tower inside it. There will be holes in the back for plugs. Would it overheat or damage my computer to be in this. The computer is kind of compact. It is the size of a big dvd player and lays horizontally. https://www.bestbuy.ca/en-ca/product/12567238

    It wouldn't be that much different from it being up against a wall on a desk. If you were hiding it in one of the side cupboards, it would be different, and you would need to take extra care about airflow. If it's passively cooled or blows out the top with plenty of height clearance, you probably don't need to do anything special. If it exhausts out the back, I would make a hole for a case fan and make sure there was decent space between the cabinet and the wall.
