CPU - performs most of the calculations which enable a computer to function Heat Sink and Fan – cools the CPU RAM - stores resident part of the current running OS and all running processes BIOS o Boot firmware • Fixed / ussually small programs o Power Management Chipset - provides the supporting interfaces between the CPU and the various buses and external components. This chipset determines, to an extent, the features and capabilities of the motherboard. Internal Busses - connect the CPU to various internal components and to expansion cards for graphics and sound o PCI o SATA o ATA External Busses Controllers - support ports for external peripherals. o USB o IEEE 1394 interface - serial bus interface standard for high-speed communications and isochronous real-time data transfer, frequently used by personal computers, as well as in digital audio, digital video, automotive, and aeronautics applications. o Small Computer System Interconnect - set of standards for physically connecting and transferring data between computers and peripheral devices
converts alternating current (AC) electric power to low- voltage DC power for the internal components of the computer
