PC cases com in 6 basic sizes: slimline, desktop, mini-tower, mid-tower, full-tower and cube. Make sure you get a case that will fit your motherboard - many micro ATX and FlexATX cases are too small for a regular ATX motherboard.

Cube cases generally require a specific motherboard, so be prepared to buy both pieces at once.

Computer Power Supplies


The Power Supply Unit (PSU) converts AC power into the DC power that your motherboard and drives need. Its internal fan also provides essential cooling for the PC components and drives. ATX power supplies dominate the market and plug into all ATX (Advanced Technology Extended) and BTX (Balanced Technology Extended) form-factor motherboards. You will find up to 7 connectors on power supplies. Molex, mini, SATA, PCIe, P1, P4 (or ATX12V 2x4), and AUX - for drives, video cards, and motherboards, respectively.

Power supplies are rated in wattage, such as 400-watt or 1-kilo watt; plus better PSUs employ Active PFC (Active Power Factor Correction) to stop harmonics.

Power supplies die suddenly or slowly over time. With the latter, the clue is intermittent problems. Replace the power supply, don't try to fix a dead or dying power supply.

Motherboards


All motherboards have a chipset. Traditional chipsets are composed of 2 chips: Northbridge and Southbridge.

Northbridge:
The Northbridge communicates with the fastest devices, namely the RAM and the video card.

Southbridge:
The Southbridge communicates with the slower devices such as the lower-throughput expansion buses, I/O parts, and integrated peripherals.

Communication with legacy devices, such as the floppy disk drive or the serial port, is usually delegated out to a circuit called the Super I/O chips.

In many recent system architectures, the CPU communicates with RAM directly, instead of relying on the Northbridge - and in the latest architectures, the Northbridge has been eliminated since the CPU possesses all of its functionality.

The ATX form factor - including full-sized, microATX, and FlexATX - dominates the PC market.

Motherboards support literally dozens of device types through integrated I/O and expansion slots.

Installation is a matter of placing standouts properly and screwing down the motherboard.

Troubleshooting is tough, though, because of all the variables in the computer, but the fix for a bad motherboard is simple : replace it.
