Pretty simple question actually. I need to build a computer for a neighbor, and only have 50$ for a motherboard. With that range (SUB-$50), it seems I have a choice between the GeForce 6100 with the nForce 410 southbridge or an AMD chipset with the SB700. In terms of southbridge performance, which is superior the nForce 410 or SB700? A video card will be added later so NB performance is not really an issue.

To be honest I'd find it hard to recommend anything less than a SB710 as well. You can find some ASrock 770 or 785G boards starting around $65, the difference is worth it IMO. What CPU will it be used with?
