You will need a usenet server access plan, I use astraweb and have their $11 special (about £7 a month) this gives you unlimited downloads and will max out your connection. They have one of the best retentions around too at 480 days which means any files are held for 480 days on their servers.

Software wise I use:
Altbinz to handle and manage the downloads,
quickpar to repair any damaged files using the par files included in the downloads (rarely needed).
Damnnfo for viewing the nfo files.
Winrar for extraction.


My preferred sites for downloads are (in order).

www.merlins-portal.net
www.nzbmatrix.com
www.nzbsrus.com
and finally for more elusive stuff
www.binsearch.info
