Agreed Anil8tor. I used a strap once....and broke it. Havent used it since. I use a antic static pad, bags, etc. I too touch the case frame (while its plugged in), then unplug and remove components. You have to be smart about it, but there is overkill.
I would love to test the theory. Rub feet on carpet, hands on hair, whatever. Then man handle a pci card. Test it and find out whats up. I just happened to have an old scsi card begging to be zapped! >:D
