    At home is quicker if you're organized with:

    MOBO: drivers
    Software you want on the PCs
    Laptops software you need

    Hardware
    Video
    RAM
    CPU
    Optical Drives
    HDD
    FDD (I've not building those to any PC)
    Capture Cards
    Sound Cards
    An etc..

    You need more practice, then :)

    The I/O shield is probably the trickiest part, i'd agree, but it can be done. Occasionally the far right-hand screws will slide out because it tips too much, but those are the easy ones.

    You also don't have to put EVERY screw in.

    I've got an OLD screwdriver that I'm almost certain wasn't intended to be magnetic, but somehow it is, very weakly. It can hold onto a screw completely vertical but if you tilt it it falls off. I use that, works great.
