Thanks, I didn't want to be the only person that was like woa what? ESD is instant gratification. It either gets shocked and does not work, or it works perfectly fine.

Yea I'd be far more concerned with substandard packaging (overpack) than not having an ant-static bag.
Plenty of cards have come my way without them and have been just fine.

Holy... wow lots of replies, well i mean yes i did pay with paypal, and i did like idk a 5 minute test on each. nope no parts fell off, and ya no blown parts or anything, well i guess i thought i was in the right for thinking this, but i can imagine everyone thinking the same thing. I'm probably not going to worry about it but still i mean i have a legitimate reason you know. It is this model http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150604

Well i wont worry about it, i just know that some esd damage might be seen overtime, i mean i hear so much about ESD being a big issue, and then "nah its fine" lol SO confusing

The reason you hear such varied opinions is because the only people that got DOA cards are upset. Everyone else was fine sp they don't care

I would leave neutral feedback

esd is a big deal when you are handling your electronics, it's not a big deal if they are just in a box.

I can't even remember the last time I grounded myself before handling stuff.
Unless it's the middle of the winter and I'm moonwalking across my carpet in socks before tearing a PC apart I'm not worried about it.

I would not be as mad at the seller selling you the card in the packaging which is really bad but him not telling you that there was something wrong with it and for that price he made you pay its crazy. Hope everything works out.

a little bit of esd normally wont hurt i wouldn't be to worried about it i mean even companies like evga ship cards new in bubble rap normally there cheaper models but same idea and the box and the bobble rap do protect it some what but even then esd is normally not an issue but i can see why you would be upset paying $150 for a nice gift for your brother and then the seller ends up sending you the card in cheap packaging with out any type of protection how ever i dont really use esd bags myself to protect against esd i use them to protect against water damage and humidity the esd protection is just a bonus for me but idk perhaps he didn't have any anti-static bags and didnt want to buy any to keep the cost to ship low idk but if the card tested out fine i wouldn't be to concerned about it but i wouldn't buy anything from that seller again smile.gif

Well is it possible if a graphics card had some ESD damage that it could in turn start damaging the motherboard. And are there any other stress testers/memory testers out there?
