I have all the components but didn't know I needed a grounding wrist strap. Will touching the tower with the screw driver and my hands be enough? Sorry for the dumb question but I don't wanna screw up my first home built computer.

While the wrist strap / anti-static mat is ideal, the answer to your question is yes. Grounding yourself to the case before touching components will discharge static electricity if the case itself is grounded. More info =>
