The worst part is the CPU/Heatsink (socket 775 suck a lot), other than that it's easy.

Money wasted IMO, I never had any problem and I dont use anti-static bracelets in my personal and work related computer building/repairing.

well as long as you follow some general rules the chances are ~1-2 out of 10. if it's a first build then your nerves will be so tuned in u'll be even more careful

since you know all the bits and pieces you likely don't need to be reminded, but some things i'd learned:
*just make sure you've got a grounding strap of some sort (buy one or fashion a similar one yourself) or keep a hand on something grounded at all times
*don't do computer work on carpet static blows >_< . i was once going to do it in carpeted room once, but an inch-long static spark from me to newly opened case told me otherwise
*don't take parts out of their cases "just to admire them", i honestly don't even take them out of packaging til it comes time to test them and install them (call me overprotective, but hey i haven't fried anything yet)
*very sharp, hot, or otherwise angry thingies of doom should stay far away from the components (pets, siblings, firearms, fire, alcohol, that sandwich you're eating while upgrading your ram... or while your cat does it... all count)
*don't turn anything on til you've checked and rechecked everything from connections to loose screws (mainly for any behind the mobo, don't want one to bridge a circuit and *poof*)
