I have a GTX 460 that I need to store until I get my new PC built and I was wondering how is hold go about it?

I have heard that I could use a brown paper bag, aluminum foil, and of course an anti static bag. I plan on getting an atistatic bag soon but until then would something like a big brown paper bag work (like the one's from Cracker Barrel) or what about the cardboard box that my PSU came in?

A paper bag should work. Really when your storing it, like most other components, you just have to look for static to damage it. Paper won't hold a static charge, so then keep it someplace where it won't get bounced around to much. An anti static bag would probably be better, I always keep them when my components ship inside one.
