You're kidding, right?

Just in case you're not, it depends on the computer. The hundreds of millions of transistors could be called components. The monitor, keyboard, disk drives, motherboard, power supply and peripheral hardware each have many chips containing an overwhelming number of transistors each.

You'd have to research each component used in a specific computer, perform a chip count, and while you're at it count all of the other components. Since each manufacturer has different ideas of what's the RIGHT way to build a computer, each computer will have a different count. But feel free to start the research.

Just one typical 1G byte RAM package has nearly 10,000,000,000 transistors (components) and about 8,000,000,000 memory capacitors (components) on it. A modern Microprocessor, Bridge Chip, Drive controller, etc. has similar numbers of components on it. Most chip manufacturers will not release actual component counts of their products as it is considered proprietary.
