Beside the screwdriver and thermal paste is there any other tool I need? According to some computer guide, it only mention the different screw driver and anti-static wriststrap (which I just ground itself). I need to know so that I can purchase all at once from newegg, thanks.

Really no need for the static wrist band, just make sure you touch some metal on your case before handling the high dollar components.
