There are many reasons why the computer became an accepted tool in production, research and entertainment. It has versatile capabilities and almost all areas of work may harness its powers to benefit from faster performance and better efficiency. But the one aspect that has been responsible for the incessant experimentation, improvisation and improvement in computer componentry, is its modular design. The modular design of the computer allows any person with even intermediate knowledge of computer hardware to tweak features, add parts as and when he needs it, or make a handsome amalgamation of various brands, various company products to suit his needs. The role of components becomes vital in this respect.
Components are those parts of anything that compose it. In respect of computer, its different hardware parts are its components. There are two categories of computer components – the essential components, and the accessory components. The computer would not run without the essential components; the accessory components enhance the performance and add extra features. The various components include the processor, the SMPS, the motherboard, the cooling systems, the optical and hard drives, the floppy drive, the mouse, the keyboard, the monitor, the printer and scanner, and other parts.
Every day more advanced components are being devised. The modular structure allows us to replace one component with another; we can thus benefit from the newer component, without replacing the whole computer. While we benefit from the various components without giving it a thought, it is curious to compare that such a components market is not available for any other electronic gadget – either the television, or the DVD players.
