The Borg win this one. Assimilation takes a matter of minutes, and while not a complete drone, still adds to the hive mind's capability to form tactics and planning. Even after being assimilated, doesn't take very long to make a complete drone. The assimilation technique is also very efficient. One quick stab of those needle/tube thingies and the process has begun.
The Cybermen? Not so much. They require subduing their target, keep them that way long enough to hack the skull open with large clunky tools, then remove the brain and spinal column. Keep in mind, this means that they also need to have Cybermen bodies pre-built.
It also appears that the Cybermen require an intact brain and spinal column for the Cyberman body. Since assimilation process removes the spinal column and parts of the brain, I would guess this means that the Borg could assimilate the Cybermen, and the reverse would not be true (Could be wrong though).
So, yeah, I think the Borg have the advantage in almost every category.

I am disappoint.
Glad I'm not the only one. :P
Since someone else brought it up however... Torres took to leather and tube fashion rather well. :D
