      The most important component of any PC is the processor and even the HD, but themotherboard, which is responsible for buses and all communication between components. If a PC was a living organism, the processor, memory and HD would form different areas of the brain, while the motherboard would be the rest of the body including vital organs.

      Due to the huge amount of chips, trails, capacitors and fittings, the motherboard is also the component that, in general, gives more defects. It is common for a PCI slot to stop working (though others remain normal), to install a memory module in the second socket to make micro pass to catch, even though the module works perfectly on the first and so on.

      Most of the problems of instability and crashes are caused by various problems on the motherboard, so it is the component that should be chosen more carefully. In general, more worthwhile to invest in a good motherboard and save on other components than the opposite.
