My System Specs

Default Northbride importance?

Does the northbridge chipset have a big impact on overall system performance?
Ex. I notice the 780g and 760g have similar capabilities so is there any major performance contrast? Aside from IGP of course. If a board supports the same socket, ram speed, etc. but has a different chipset, is it worth paying the extra money?

I would be using an addon card so that brings me to the question I asked: What difference is it going to make on overall system performance? If any.

Hybrid Crossfire only works with the ati 2400xt, 2400pro, 3450 or the 3470 theres is really no point in getting the 780G chipset if your gonna get an add on GPU. But on the other hand its only $10-20 more for it. and maybe the 780G have more feature than the 760G ?

I would definatly go for the 780G, because it can be used as an HTPC without the need of an add-on graphics

As for system performance, an ATI 2600XT/nVidia 8600gts will dominate the 780G + its hybrid fire .

The overall performance will depend on your CPU, GPU and rams
