What's the best way to go about avoiding static when building a new computer? I've seen some swear by wriststraps and others just say to not rub your socks a lot on carpet and you'll be fine. I don't want to mess anything up so I want to be careful and make sure I know what I'm doing first.
I don't bother with an anti-static wristband (while it would be nice, it's not always necessary). I'm just mindful of not wearing any static clothing (basketball shorts) and I usually don't wear socks as well. As welshmousepk mentioned, just touch any exposed metal on the case in between moving around.
