Antistatic Wrist Strap
I STRONGLY second this. Make VERY SURE that your tools are not magnetized. You also might consider picking up a forehead-flashlight at your local hardware store, they look goofy but are really helpful when you need great light and both hands. Only consider LED based ones, the old incandescent ones suck comparatively. Get some cable-ties too, though you likely already know about that bit.
I've really liked this toolkit over the years, and it comes with the wrist-strap: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16899261003
You should have enough RAM for now, I just hope your board can accommodate 32gb for later expansion.
