I tried to look on Wikipedia but there isn't a page on Marigold gloves
So was wondering if i should ask you guys.

What's better, Marigold gloves or a proper anti static wrist strap?

not needed guy.

As long as you have touched the side of a tower and released all built up charge and watch where you touch, your not going to hurt anything.

Out of 1000 s of PC,s and laptops I have built in my life and business I have NEVER fried or ruined anything. I don't use the strap, I have the strap but I find it more annoying then needed.

the gloves are a good idea if you have never built or have limited exsperience i really dont like the strap sometimes it comes off the case or whereever you put the clip and then all your doing is building static

ditto GURU (well at least 10 systems under my belt-lol)
i ave been sitting on the carpet, petting my cat and building a system at the same time.
as long as you touch the case (the inside since there is usually no paint)before you install each piece you should have no problems at all.

i still build on the carpet sometimes, but the cat has got to go when i build-you think dust is hard to get out of a case, try long cat hair-lmao

This time of year there usually no problem with static discharge. If your building the computer in the winter when it's cold and dry you would have to worry about it more. I have myself about 10 systems under my belt and it has never been a problem.

I live in hot humid weather in a carpeted apartment. I built my computer on the carpet in front of the t.v. and started off using the wrist strap. The clip scratched up my paint job to what ever i clipped it to and i forgot to wear the strap more and more as time went on. In the end i only wore the strap when touching the cpu, and that was 50% of the time. My computer works great, but if you can manage to remember to wear the strap or anti static gloves, by all means do.

Hi guys . I use rubber gloves you see doctors wear . I get a box at Wallgreens . I will tell you why I believe in using these rubber gloves . It prevents the oils on your fingers and the nasty finger prints from getting all over your parts . I recommend the thin rubber gloves for your builds .
