Are these really needed? Can i just use normal latex gloves without rubbing my hand in carpet first?
I read an article that said ESD isn't 100% static proof. Anyone?

I don't use any type.of glove or wrist band. I just make sure to touch the metal case every so often to discharge any static electricity.

well i was using them on a friends computer because he had carpet and i figured it would work better to minimize the static, and my friend who works at mac was telling me those gloves don't work.

PC components are very resistant to static shock. You'd probably need a taser to damage something like that. The only precaution that you need to take is ensuring that the PSU is properly seated in the case and that the power cable is plugged into a properly grounded receptacle with the AC mains switch turned off (the I/O switch on the back of the PSU)
