A desktop computer is a stand-alone personal computer with the main components housed in an enclosure that protects them from the environment and the environment from the computer, such as electromagnetic interference (EMI). Inside the enclosure is a motherboard that holds the electronic components of the computer. CPU (central processing unit) is installed on the motherboard and acts as the computer's brain. Expansion add-in cards (such as sound cards, graphics cards) are inserted into connectors that are mounted directly on the motherboard. The motherboard has printed circuits that distributes signals from the add-in cards to appropriate components on the motherboard via an expansion bus. A desktop computer enclosure also houses components including power supply, microprocessor, volatile and non-volatile memory, storage drives (such as hard disk drives and removable media drives), and other integrated circuits used in data processing. The input/output (I/O) devices, including monitors (LCD monitors, CRT monitors), mouse, keyboard, scanner, printer, and other multimedia devices (digital cameras, camcorders, voice microphoes, webcam) are connected by means of cables that plug into connectors (including USB connectors) at a back panel of the chassis.
