Basically, if you created an alluminium motherboard tray you should be ok.
Or run earth wires like mark
Yeah most (all)? metal cases are designed so that all parts of the case are connected to the PSU which is in turn grounded to earth.
Providing there is a route to earth through something conductive then you wont have any problems.

Im confused also
id rather a metal try just incase lol
Rub a wool jumper on an acrylic case and chances are you'll have a case that the hairs on your head, arms (and whatever parts of your body you put near your PC
) will be attracted to. There is a chance that static could zap hardware, but if you get rid of any static before installing hardware and don't rub your Christmas jumper against the inside of the case, you'll be fine.
