more about motherboards

A motherboard is the main circuit board inside a computer that connects the different parts of a computer together. It has sockets for the CPU, RAM and expansion cards (e.g. discrete graphics cards, sound cards, network cards, storage cards etc)... and it also hooks up to hard drives, disc drives and front panel ports with cables and wires. easier way to understand what is a motherboard is picturing it as your body's nervous system. It links all the individual parts of a computer together... and in doing so, allows the CPU (brain) to access and control these separate parts.

Other than bridging internal components, the motherboard ports (see image below) also allows you to connect external devices to the computer. Such external devices would include the monitor, speakers, headphones, microphone, keyboard, mouse, modem and other USB devices.
