Xeon e3 1245 v2

i'm trying to build my own workstation for video editing. i'm most likely going to buy an intel xeon e3 1245 v2 processor. I need help figuring out what motherboard, graphics card, power supply etc.. i need to support it.. i don't know much about computers so anything will help.

  1. You'll need a motherboard like this one:

    What is your budget for this system? Also, just so you'll know, you don't need a Xeon for a video workstation. Pretty much any modern AMD or Intel based PC (or notebook for that matter) can perform these tasks.
