I plan on building my first computer soon, and i have read that befiore touching any component, I should ground myself by toucihing the bare metal part to the side of the computer case. The problem is that the case I ordered is fuilly painted in black (Corsair 650D). Can I still ground myself if I touch the case? Or is there any other way to ground myself?

thanks a lot! I was really worried about frying one of my components. Also, the power supply seems to be painted too, so will it work if I touch it? or can I touch any other metal?
thanks again:)
