Default chipset help

I need help I am looking at how every Chipet work and are connected.

Like in the Pentume CPUs the chipsets Northbridge had a BUS going from the CPU to the Northbridge and AGP aand L was also connected direcliy to the Northbridge.

Now the AMD CPUs connect directly to Main memory so just the PCI E and AGP are connected to Northbridge.

And the CPU is connected to Northbridge by Hypertransport.

How can I findout how my chipset is connected to my CPU I have an AMD Athlon 64
and my chipset is

Northbridge Chipset
A.M.D 780G
Southbridge Chipset
A.M.D SB700

And my board uses Hypertransport 3.0

I would like to know if my AMD CPU is conneted to northbrigde and how I know it is through Hypertransport instead of a BBUS

But how is my southbrigde connected to the norhbridge is it still direcctly or what??

How do I find this
