I've never met a techie that wore ESD protection unless they were teaching noobs how to take care of their computers. You probably won't need one unless you're dumb enough to fix your computer in a carpeted room, wearing socks, and shuffling your feet, while holding a lightning rod in an electrical storm.

My PC:
AMD Athlon 64 3200+
512 MB 2700 (Soon to be 1gb PC 3200)
ATI Radeon 9500 Pro (Soon to be ATI Radeon AIW 9800 Pro)

but i thought lightening rods were the safest things to be around during a storm? if you can't afford an ESD wriststrap and have braces on your teeth just use some car jumpers to ground yourself to the case
