I consider a router the most fun tool in the shop. And welcome aboard. First tip, keep your fingers away from the whirley part. No one can tell you what bits to use unless they know what you want to do.
If you're planning on a router table, I highly recommend making your own. There's a thread showing different router tables people here made, someone should have the link. Doesn't need to be fancy, just to do what YOU want it to do, which is one reason I made mine without using plans. Mine is maybe 10 years old, Gen 4 or 5, and I'd be surprised if I have $10 in it - did buy bolts, nuts, washers.
