Anti-static bags

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
No, this isn't totally in the wrong place.

But I'm selling my old Geforce 6600 AGP/256mb card and MSI K9MM-V socket AM2 tomorrow for 40 bucks, and I was wondering if I could put the video card in the same anti-static bag as the motherboard. Would this be a stupid thing to do?

I also have a manilla envelope lined with bubble wrap. Would this be better for transporting the video card?

Thanks everyone.

I wouldn't put it in the same bag. Too much of a chance for the boards to hit/rub up against each other and cause damage.

Both bad ideas.

Okay, thanks.

Any suggestions on what I should put the video card in?

I have the mobo in an anti-static bag.

Same way you do the motherboard. Antistatic bag + bubblewrap

Wait..

I'm sorry, I should have clarified that I only have one anti-static bag.

Sorry about that.

That's not an option unless they sell them at walmart for less than 10 dollars.
