Parts of the Motherboard
When you buy a system, it comes (or at least should) with everything you need for your PC to work properly. However, when you buy a motherboard itself, you have to do a bit more work to make sure everything comes with it that is supposed to. In addition to the motherboard itself, a good quality motherboard should come with the items described in this section.
Note: The cables discussed
in this section often come in a sealed plastic bag. Some motherboard vendors will only
give you the package with the cables if you remember to ask for it. It's really
disappointing to get half-way through your assembly procedure and realize that you are
missing your cables! Also, make sure you get the right ones for your motherboard; they are
often not interchangeable.
