There are three main parts that make up a personal computer. The computer is the large steel box which contains the hard drive, DVD or CD, power supply, mother board, and the processor. The computer may also contain other components such as the sound and video cards, and internal modems. The monitor could be the newer LCD or older CRT type, it is the screen, or the part of the computer that looks like a television. The keyboard is the part which, not surprisingly, looks like a typewriter keyboard. In some older models, the computer may be housed in the same case as the monitor or the keyboard.
