Is there a problem if I store and tie inside a plastic bag the box with my Gigabyte Motherboard and other electronics inside the Plastic bag? components get humidity and damage the electronics?

This will have the opposite effect. The bag will actually cause humidity. A thick cardboard box with silica gel packets will be better. The silica and cardboard will absorb moisture, not trap it.

Haven't you ever seen water drops collect in a sealed plastic bag?

That's what eBay is for. http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/2813303...lpid=82&chn=ps

PC parts are not in "plastic bags" exactly. Those are anti-static bags. Not the same.
And those contain silica packs as well.

You asked how to do it. That's how. There's no other ways. Cardboard and silica. Only use anti-static for things that needs it (hard drives, graphics cards, etc).
