Can anyone tell me whether anti static foam cleaners are good for cleaning motherboards, RAMs, VGAs etc?
Also if it's good for that purpose would anyone know a good brand that sells overseas? Preferably with an ebay shop..

These cleaners are basically 2-BE, ethyl alcohol, and water. The only issue would be the water. If you find they dry quickly with no residue, it should be harmless so long as all of the cleaner remains on the surface.
Personally, however, I wouldn't do it. There's no advantage to getting things that clean -- they'll just get dirty again. And the risk of using a water-based cleaner doesn't seem worth it to me.
It's perfectly safe on external, non-porous surfaces that aren't near any actual electrical components.
