I agree, any cheap set should do just fine. The only thing to watch out for is that some Torx screws are made to be “tamper resistant”. They have a small pin standing up in the center of the hole that prevents insertion of a regular Torx driver. You can buy Torx drivers that have a matching hole. Sort of defeats the “tamper resistant” feature, doesn’t it? The ones with the hole work fine on screws that lack the pin, so just purchasing them would save some cash. Actually, you don’t need a set, just measure the opening in the screw and buy one driver bit at the hardware store.
