The PCI bus, which carries data to and from expansion cards, such as sound cards, network interface cards (NICs), modems, and other PCI cards. ❏ The front-side bus (FSB), which carries data to and from the system’s CPU. / 2901-2/ Chapter 2 The Motherboard, Processor, and Memory 25 Figure 2-1 A typical motherboard Each bus works at its own speed set by its controller, a logic chip that maintains the flow of traffic through its bus. The PCI bus operates at 33MHz on nearly every motherboard available today.

It also houses the Accelerated Graphics Port (AGP) slot and controller, so it determines the AGP bandwidth (the conduit between the main memory bank and the graphics card). Your motherboard’s form factor (the size, shape, and other physical and electrical attributes) must match the case you’ve chosen. Since we’ve focused on ATX cases so far, the first thing you’ll need to know about your choice of motherboard is that it needs to be an ATX model. That’s not a limiting factor, because the vast majority of motherboards manufactured are ATX boards.

Figure 1-6 shows a naked power supply. A typical ATX power supply contains an integrated circuit board with the necessary capacitors, resistors, coils, and other electrical components needed to perform its duties. There’s no need to go into detail here for two reasons: one, the power supply’s printed circuit board (PCB) isn’t considered a serviceable part, so if you blow a power supply or if it otherwise becomes damaged, it’s best to replace it rather than tinker with its electronic innards; and two, it would take pages upon pages of explanation that would be better suited for an Electrical Engineering 101 textbook.
