I don't have one of those fancy anti-static wrist wraps but I'll just touch the computer case to discharge any buildup.

I presume I pretty much only need some screwdrivers (probably medium size).

But am I missing any other tools?

In most cases you should only need a Phillips head screwdriver.

Yep.

Any other tools or attachments should come with the case or whatever device you buy.

I would suggest one of these, when I built mine I used about half of the tools.

Screw driver only. Maybe an anti-static wrist thing if you're paranoid.

This is for the most part all I have ever needed. The exception is the little hex wrench for my aftermarket CPU heatsink, but that actually came *with* the heatsink, so the only tool you should need to provide is a Philips.

Are you also using thumbscrews for motherboard risers and to secure the motherboard *to* the risers?

What on earth were you doing inside that thing that you needed even half of those tools? @_@ Building your own motherboard from scratch too or something?
