Barebone computers are also called assemble computers. It is a PC with minimum requirements to be called a programming device. A typical barebone computer consists of a CPU, Hard Drive, RAM, Motherboard and Power Supply. “Kya mast jugaad hai na boss…?” So, it is basically like getting ready for a fashion show by picking up clothes, accessories and shoes from different places, different brands and still looking the best out of everyone.
“Kaafi fancy naa like South Delhi peeps?”
But primarily, it is the case and also referred to as the system unit or basic unit, more like the shell and skeleton of the computer. So it is a home for your barebone computer. It helps you to protect and arrange all components that create a desktop computer. So here are the main types of computer Cases-desktop, Full-sized Tower, Slimline and Mini-sized Tower.
2. Power Supply
“Itni shakti hame dena data, barebone computer mein vishwas kum ho naa…”
It is also known as a power supply unit, a hardware component that supplies all other hardware with power. It converts a flowing high voltage AC into a steady low voltage DC. If you are trying to customise it according to yourself, never open the casing of a power supply holding a strong electrical charge. Better be safe while dealing with your barebone computer or assemble a computer.
“Insaan wali maa nahi…barebone computer ki maa!”
As the name suggests, ‘Motherboard’ serves the same function as maa. It is the foundation of a barebone computer. It allows power and communication between the CPU, RAM and other hardware components. Pet names for ‘her’ are MB, Mainboard, Mboard, Mobo, Backplane Board, Baseboard, System Board or Logic Board.
“Yaad karna aasan thode hi hai…”
Just like human beings, barebone computers also need memory to support their work. But it totally depends upon your own need for memory space as you are customising it according to your requirements. So it is a physical device capable of storing data temporarily or permanently with the help of RAM and ROM. ROMs have three categories PROM, EPROM, EEPROM, while RAM has six classifications: EDO, SDRAM, DDR, DDR2, DDR3, DDR4.
5. Video Card

“Measurements and space…”
Size matters a lot because maybe you are customising it according to the space available to you. So there are two main types of barebone computers: Book Size Barebone and Mini Cube Barebone. Book Size is slim and sharp, while the Mini Cube also provides a lot of space as the towers are less tall, providing a good sound inside the room.
