Building/Modding new computer/1st time

Hey guys, modding my intel core 2 quad/ati radeon 4890/4gb ddr2/750w corsair/500gb western digital 7200rpm system.

I just puchased a AMD phenom x4 II 965/ASUS m479UTD EVO/ and 4gb DDR3 1600 and Coolermaster RC690 case.

When installing these parts on top of my desktop, is a anti-static wrist strap connect to my pc chassis and me enough to prevent ESD?

Please let me know, thanks

  1. Yes its enough to prevent ESD, but if you can find better grounding such as an exposed pipe etc.. you'll feel a lot safer
  2. That is enough, but remember not to walk around in socks on the carpet.

    You have no idea the amount of times I see people play it safe, but they are in socks on the carpet.
  3. Hmm ouch, I think thats what I usually wear. I think I am going to buy a anti static mat too just in case. I wanna get this build right, its my first time :)
  4. good for you good luck mate!!!
