       The two chipsets are the North and Southbridge. The Northbridge work with the AGP Port, the main memory and the FBS (Front side bus), while the Southbridge works on the data from the PCI and ISA slots. But the Computer needs both to work even thought the Northbridge seems to do all the important work. The I/O controller is and input/output device, where you give the the information to the computer and i gose to the CPU. Or the I/O controller can get the information from the existing Hard Disk or RAM.-Vlad
