PC Parts – Computers are complex machines, with much of the processing and work being done at a microscopic level. But did you know that inside a computer are several parts that you can see or identify with ease? These computer components are what make any machine run and affect its performance.

You don’t have to be an IT expert to learn the basics of what computer parts do and what they look like. Let’s review some of the standard computer components and you’ll hopefully learn something today!

The motherboard is an important computer component because it’s what everything else connects to! The motherboard is a decently sized circuit board that lets other components communicate. A motherboard has ports that face outside a PC’s case, so you can charge your computer, plug in a monitor, or connect a mouse.

A computer’s motherboard also contains slots for expansions, so you can add additional accessory ports if you wish. The motherboard also stores low-level information like the system time even when the computer is turned off.

Power Supply
True to its name, the power supply powers all other components of the machine. It usually plugs into the motherboard to power the other parts. The power supply connects to either an internal battery (on a laptop) or a plug for an outlet (on a desktop).

Central Processing Unit (CPU)
A CPU, sometimes referred to as a computer’s brain, is the workhorse of the machine. It performs the calculations needed by a system, and can vary in speed. The work that a CPU does generates heat, which is why your computer has a fan inside. A more powerful CPU is necessary for intense computer work like editing high-definition video or programming complex software.
