Torque screwdrivers are a specialty tool and priced accordingly. I use Snap-On tools mostly, and they do have several models:

Price is high (around $200), but they're not terribly expensive compared to other high-precision brands.

epinions.com shows a Craftsman set (810568), no price given, but I can't find it on the Sears website.

Amazon has one for $55 made by Neiko, the name you know and trust, and an SK unit that should be OK for $75. I'd start here and poke around the Web:
