I am wondering the tdp for GeForce 6100 IGP and nForce430 MCP. Since I would like to built a low cost machine with a AthlonII 2650e processor.

For the nForce430 MCP, it's 95 W max. I was unable to find one for the GeForce 6100 though.
It beats me why you want to build a m/c with such outdated components. You could get a modern pc with future upgradability for as low as $300

the TDP of the chipset

Orginally, I was thinking about to get an Atom230 itx. However I found out that most Atom230 itx boards are equipped with chipset 945GC+ICH7 and the total tdp of the atom230+945GC+ICH7 is around 30w.

Last week, my friend show me his asrock A780GM-LE with a a AthlonII 2650e processor. The tdp of this combo is around 30w as well.

Therefore, I am wondering an itx board with outdated chipset like GF6100 IGP and nF430 MCP with a AthlonII 2650e whether may achieve a lower tdp.

With an 2650e, the whole system will barely use 45W under full load.
The power usage for the MCP61/Nforce 430 is around 20W.

many thx!!!
