When I am building a computer what kit should I get? Should I get precision screwdriver with bits or a few magnetic screwdrivers? Any recommendations are welcome.

I'd just get a magnetic phillips head screwdriver, a long one at that, and two sizes, normal and small

Is this good? Looks like good quality and has multiple screwdrivers of multiple sizes that are flathead and Phillips.

Looks good. The only screwdrivers you really need are a #0 and #2 Philips (or similar size) so the flat head ones are of no use (although they can be good for prying stuff apart)

Well it is nice to have both just in case because you can use flathead for both types in certain scenarios. Thanks for the help.

Yup, good set, and cheezmeister is right

I would also get a cheap torx screwdriver for the rare occasion if you gotta deal with an OEM system (a size T-15 specifically)

I’m probably going to get this. It has a torx bit and everything for only $20 it has a t15 torx bit to be specific. It has #0 and #2 Phillips screwdrivers. https://www.amazon.com/Phanteks-Piece-Computer-Tool-Kit/dp/B0798K5W35

Any standard size philips screw driver will work. You can get a magnetic or bendable one if you want but its not necessary.

If you want to go really fancy.

Are the bits themselves magnetic because if so thanks a ton because that is cheaper than imagined for the utility and versatility.

I honestly couldn't tell you but this is pretty much the best you are going to get for building a PC. It has everything you need and nothing you don't need.

If you do any other tinkering with electronics I'd spend a few bucks more and grab something like this https://www.amazon.com/Precision-Screwdriver-Magnetic-Bits,Professional-Electronics/dp/B072N833D8
