Great now everybody has me terrified that the one year of time my hardware spent in Dollar Tree gallon ziplocks stacked on top of each other in plastic totes has killed all my hardware. Though I was unemployed and moving with very little notice so its not like I could afford proper ESD bags at the time. That shits on order now though.
Now I'm scared. 0.o at least the good shit was in whatever left over ESD bags I had or boxes. So the GF256 and the 6800GT along with all the 3DFX shit is safe. Its mostly stuff like Radeon 9200s, FX5200s, and GeForce MX cards that got the shaft, along with some bigger stuff like my Geforce 9800GTX
Though if its true ESD just causes premature failure it might be decades before some if this stuff fails. As a lot of these cards see under 1-2 hours of usage per year.
