5, 5.5, 7, 8mm nut drivers
1.5, 2, 2.5, 3mm hex drivers
3/16, 1/4, 11/32" nut drivers
.050, 1/16, 5/64, 3/32" hex drivers

That should get you very close to what you will need

I'll answer your next question which is the subject of the weekly "best tool" threads.
MIP and Hudy best hex tips, all others choose by handle preference.

I second mip! I wouldn't pay out the top dollar for Hudy though unless I have real need.

Even though Hudys top dollar the MIPs better. Have both. Kept the hudy nut drivers since MIP does not make em but for hex drivers MIP is the best.

flat, button, set, cap, all the same hex / tool per size
only a few really needed for either metric or american
Almost none are a full size handle other than MIP.
For nutdrivers and phillips with big handles just use "regular" tools.
The quality of non-hex tools is not as critical.
