1. A screwdriver and some zip ties
2. Probably 2-4 hours if it's your first time, a bit longer if you take it slowly.

4. What are some paid games that you would highly recommend?


Valve Complete Pack + Garry's Mod (I forget if GMod comes in the complete pack)
Starcraft 2 + Expansion
SimCity 4 + Expansion
Civilization 5 + Expansions AND/OR Civilization 4 + Expansions
A Total War Game of the time zone / era / etc. that interests you the most
Battlefield 3 + Expansions
Grand Theft Auto 4
All the Elder Scrolls Games
Crysis + 2 + 3
Command and Conquer Complete Pack
Minecraft
World of Warcraft + Expansions

^ These are the PC games I would say every PC gamer should have / try at this point in time.

There are a ton more I would recommend, but that list would be too long. If you give us an idea of the kind of games you like, I could recommend some more.
