A good computer casing first of all ensures that your valuable components are kept safe and in the right place. The most common enclosures accommodate ATX and microATX motherboards. Sometimes a power supply is included, but this is also available separately. If you compare a standard power supply with a more expensive, separate power supply, the latter will often provide higher power. Essential if you want to be able to further expand your system. Furthermore, a better power supply ensures less noise and lower consumption. A DVD drive or card reader completes the enclosure.
The motherboard, together with the processor and working memory, forms the heart of the computer system. All components are connected to the motherboard. It serves as the central nervous system of the system and controls all components. The processor, or CPU, is in fact the brain of the computer system. It is able to perform complex calculations at lightning speed. The working memory (also called RAM) is used by the CPU to temporarily store data. This allows it to efficiently handle the available computing power.
A good graphics card, also called video card, is indispensable when you want to run heavy graphics applications, such as games. A good graphics card can display images in high resolution, up to 8K, and with high FPS (Frames Per Second). Another essential component is storage memory. A conventional hard disk drive (HDD) consists of several magnetic turntables on which data can be stored for a long period of time. These are suitable for storing large amounts of data and can therefore often be found in a NAS (network-attached storage). Solid state drives (SSDs) have no moving parts and are therefore not comparable to traditional hard disks. An SSD is able to read/write data much faster. That is why SSD's have become the standard in PC's and laptops. Besides the basic parts of a PC, you will also find other hardware in this category, to complete your system!
