Components of Computers


Motherboards are the 'backbone' of computers. It connects all of the other components together by using its printed circuit board.


This is also known as the Central Processing Unit which is the 'brain' of the computer. Most computers now have more than one CPU in order to improve potential and processing power.

Power Supply
