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.

Oh, one more thing...I am not buying a video card, it will be integrated into the CPU.

Great processor. No need to add anything for video unless you are playing back on a high res monitor. Check out Microcenter if there is one in your area for deals on motherboard/processors that beat Newegg.

For watching videos, that is just overkill. An i3 2100 with a decent H67/H77 motherboard will be fine.
