Screws etc. for different parts of the computer is very handy because many of my previous components came without, but they shouldn't in most new products. All i needed to build my computer with was a screwdriver ...

a anti static wristband is definatly worth £5. If your friend has one, burrow it off them. (i burrowed one from my school, along with a floppy drive, as I needed it to install the sata driver.)

Get a computer tool-kit. They are worth the $10, it comes with a antistatic wristband, a pair of tweezers and socket pulls. Also screwdrivers with the most common sizes used, all of the tools are treated with anti static and anti magnetic material.
