What's the best cpu/motherboard combo for an integrated graphics build?

Hello all, and thanks in advance.

Looking to hook my parents up with a new computer for Christmas. All they do is internet and skype. That's it. What's the best cpu/motherboard combo for them (with integrated graphics)? I'm assuming amd is the way to go, as I've heard they are better value for integrated graphics, but I know nothing about AMD APU's. Help me out please, I look forward to any advise.

edit: looking for a small build. ITX or microATX

  1. I would recommend the AMD A10-6800K, Asus A88XM-Plus/CSM Micro ATX and the cooler master hyper 212 evo as CPU cooler. Also, get Corsair DDR3-1866Mhz RAM and a 500Gb Western Digital or Seagate HDD.
  2. How is this looking so far?
    Looking at ITX, but could do micro-atx if there's a better/cheaper option
