Ive Recently Traded Ram Stick With A Friend 'Cause I Had A DDR2 But Needed A DDR And Had A DDR And Needed DDR2 So We Swaped.
I Put The Two Ram Chips Into My Pocket (Worth 1.512BG) And Went To School To Trade. Because I Put The Ram Chips In My Pocket Will Any Static Electricity Fry The Ram Chips Or Fry My MotherBoard? I Want To Know If Is Safe To Put The Ram Into My Computer! Please Help!

Also, don't walk under power lines going home thru a thunder storm holding a 15' metal pole connected to the memory.

Kidding, you should be good, and as stated, if it doesn't work, swap back with your friend very quickly.
