These days, with a toolless case, you don't need anything for a first time build. If you don't have a toolless case you should at least have a Philips head screwdriver. Small pliers might also be handy for putting in motherboard standoffs. Alcohol and coffee filters, as mentioned above, are useful if you're cleaning off thermal compound to apply a new HSF.

The coffee filters are used to wipe off thermal compound eh?
Never knew that.
I'll have to do that when I get my new cooler. Thanks guys

All I used for mine was a phillips head screwdriver and a pair of pliers with snips to cut some twist ties that I used in my cable management off all nice and neat. If you're worried about it you could also order an antistatic wrist strap, though static discharge is easy to avoid without it, just make sure to always touch your case before touching a component.

Assembling your computer naked would also work, would it not?

No, it wouldn't work.

I've never needed anything more than a basic Philips screwdriver.
