Personal Computer: Components

Today, computers are a very useful tool.But coputers aren´t only one part,They are formed by some components, which are essential for the proper functioning of the computer.

CPU:Central Processing Unit or Processor is the most important componentof the computer.It reads and interprets the data and processes it.Today we have  two big brands of processors,INTEL and AMD.Both of them make really good processors.My CPU is an AMD Athlon(tm) II X4 640 Processor


A Gigabyte Motherboard
Mother Board:or Main Board.Is the main circuit of any computer.It holds other compunents, such as the CPU the graphic card ,the sound card...it also has a firmware called BIOS(basic input-output system)who runs the OS (operative system: windows ,linux or macintosh)controls the keyborad and give us access to the inner settings of the computer.This component has a lot of brands and types.

RAM:Random Acces Memory is used as tool for the OS, programs and softwares.It is also a way of storing and accessing data in any ramdom order.It has three types(SRAM, DRAM and PRAM)which I am not going to explain them because they are too complex.It is measured in Gygabites

Hard Disk Drive:Used as a way of storing digital data.They store it usung a complex system made of magnetics parts.you can have multiple hard disks in your computer.It is measured in Gygabites
My Video Card:NVIDIA GTX 630

Video Card:or Graphics Card.Are complex devices which take the information of the CPU and transform it into comprensible information for an output device (monitors and televisions)They are also useful to render 3D scenes and 2D graphics.They are two important brands of video cards (NVIDIA and AMD).My videocard is a NVIDIA GeForce GT 630
Power Supply:They change the AC energy to low-voltage energy to be used for the PC components.My pwer supply is a fatality

Case:Is the component where all is in.It holds all the other components inside and connect them with the monitor and other devices (such as external hard disks)

Remenber,if you want to make your PC using components choose the componets with the same quality.For example, if you buy a very good processor which makes a lot of information to store, don´t buy a low-quality hard disk drive because it is not going to be able to store that amount of information.
