A motherboard is the major, underlying circuit board of a computer. The Central Processing Unit(CPU), Random Access Memory (RAM), and various disk or optical drives are all plugged into interfaces on it. A video interface and sound card can also be built-in or added, and additional connections are used by peripherals and various devices.
