Its a good idea to have a flathead as well. They come in handy sometimes.

Tweezers for moving jumpers for CMOS, etc.
Cross-head screwdriver (preferably non-magnetic).
One of those anti-static wrist straps if you're a bit paranoid and attract fuzzy static with your nylon trousers.
Some zip ties or velcro thingies for taming unruly cables.
You wife / girlfrind's make up brushes for getting dust out of small places.
Some Arctic Silver 5.

I prefer my ghetto solution (BTW, I actually grew up in an NY ghetto, so I can pull this off /tongue.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='tongue.gif' /> ), which is, a length of speaker wire, and two strips of duct tape. Strip both ends of the wire, tape one end to you, one end to the grounding platform. Vwalla, done.

Depends on location. Here in the desert at high altitude and low humidity, ESD is a bit more of a risk then other locations.

roommate has the exact same kit, no joke
screwdrivers are deacent but youll only be using 1 or 2 of them, pliers are pretty much useless for PC.
how much is shipping? if its more than a buck or two id just go down to home depot and pick up a screwdriver and pliers.

its not that bad... i just had to buy a 3pin to 4pin adapter, took me about 30mins to find a site that didnt want to charge me $7 for shipping. this is like a sub-dollar part that will fit in an UNpadded envelope.

case-mod.com by the way is totally awesome for little stuff like that. i now know. shipping is REAL. i got 3 adapters, 2 50cent ones and one 1.50 one, total was $4.
