Need help choosing a CPU Tags: New Build CPUs Motherboards Systems Product Last response: July 31, 2012 5:35 AM in Systems Share aarons10 July 31, 2012 4:56:16 AM Hello! This is my first build. I am using it for every day uses. No gaming, however, I will be watching some video's through my computer. I am going with this motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... What CPU should I get? I want to go with Intel, but am unsure where to go after that. Would ivy bridge or sandy bridge be better for this motherboard? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... That is what I'm thinking. Let me know! Appreciate your time, thanks.

No need to add anything for video unless you are playing back on a high res monitor.
