A motherboard contains several integrated components. Most motherboards will contain: * An IDE controller * A SATA controller (on newer motherboards) * A floppy controller (on older motherboards) * RAM sockets * Expansion slot(s) * The BIOS chip * Power connector * Processor socket / slot * Serial ports (phased out on some newer motherboards) * Parallel ports (phased out on some newer motherboards) Many motherboards will also integrate components that can also be replaced by an add-in card: * Graphics chipset * Network controller * Sound card * USB connectors * FireWire connectors * Dial-up modem * eSATA connector
