The four main components of computer system are input devices, output devices, Memory and Central Processing Unit (CPU). Input devices are used to provide input and instructions to be processed to the computer. These devices are also called peripheral devices and include mouse, keyboard, microphone, scanner etc. Output devices include monitor and printers which are used for displaying the results of the instructions processed by the computer. CPU (Central Processing Unit) is the main component of the computer which is responsible for data processing. CPU itself has many subcomponents such as mother board, registers, buses etc to perform the processing operations. CPU uses memory (another important component of computer) to store the instructions either permanently or temporarily. Memory then has further types such as RAM, ROM and secondary storage devices. All these components work together to perform the various commands given by the user.

Hello everyone. I agree with these answers. But everything can be considered in much more detail. Of course such parts like CPU, memory, input and output units, system Bus are important. But none of this will work without the right power source! So you should know how to choose 100% relevant PC power supply, here is an article about this https://www.inversegeek.com/features/how-to-choose-a-pc-power-supply-buying-guide/ for you!
