Why is it important to earth yourself when you build a PC?

  1. I've never grounded myself when building a PC. It takes a lot of static electricity to kill PC components, just don't go rubbing balloons before you do it.

  2. What's most important is not to ground yourself, but to "ground" yourself to the case, to get equal potential as the case. This is to prevent static build-up which can discharge and kill the electronics. If both you and the case are grounded that's even better, but not necessary during the build process
