hmm well graphics really is only the Northbridges task - Southbirdge is more the undemanding things like peripherals or data storage.

Edit: If you want, Wikipedia has a lot of good arcticles when it comes to parts of a computer - and in most cases have diagrams/pictures too

The Northbridge take most of the pounding when it comes to processing. Same with the Southbridge although the Northbridge is more involved. There use to be fans on those, but heat pipes were found to be just as efficient as they move heat away.
