I got my gtx 770 today and i wanted to get another look at it i noticed that my thumb might have touched the gold contact part and out of my ocd and panic i got my shirt and i wiped the gold contact/pins my feet weren't on the carpet i was sitting on the bed, i didn't feel any static or anything go through me and into the card, but did i screw up my graphics card? because i tried to wipe it with my shirt or because i accidentally might have touched it did i mess it up? i know you guys must get a million of these and i'm sorry.

Stay calm, its probably fine, just try not to do it again. Is it still working?

Touching the gold contact won't cause damage, but that's not saying it's fine to keep touching them. Rubbing the shirt on the gold contact wasn't a very good idea, but I highly doubt you did damage.

Install it in your computer, only way to know if it works or not.
