For a nice, free softphone to use with Asterisk@Home, try Idefisk: available here. The best part about it is that it does not require install. I just copied the files onto my USB drive and that way I can access my home PBX from anywhere.
If you need a headset for this, HippoDeals has nice stereo ones for $3.00 ea.
