    A motherboard is a main board which holds many other components together and helps to connect and manage them to form a complete system. Motherboard is a general term so there are many different types. For instance, an Intel motherboard, is different from an AMD motherboard. They are both motherboards, but they support different architectures, they manage and take different components as well as some similar components. Motherboards may have different form factors to fit specific needs. Some motherboards are specialized for smaller footprints to conserve space, usually at the cost of power and performance.

    The main circuit board of a computer. The motherboard contains the connectors for attaching additional components. Typically, the motherboard contains the CPU, BIOS, memory, mass storage interfaces, serial and parallel ports, expansion slots, and all the controllers required to control standard peripheral devices, such as the display screen, keyboard, and disk drive. Collectively, all these chips that reside on the motherboard are known as the motherboard's chipset.

    The motherboard is the main PCB inside a desktop (or laptop) computer. It usually includes the CPU and support circuitry as well as any built in peripheral control chips (ethernet, USB etc) as well as a number of expansion slots (PCI, ePCI etc). The exception is used in some industrial systems , 19" rack mount. They are termed passive back planes, the main board contains no processor or pheripheral devices just expansion slots and a processor slot into which a single board computer can be plugged.

    There are numerous different models of motherboard each with specific features and chipsets. The minimal "types" are divided up by manufacturer (AMD, Intel, etc.) and processor further subdivided by different integrated peripherals.

    Different sized boards are made to fit different form factor cases.

    Basically all the other components, the monitor, printer,

    your power source, the audio and video cards, the fans,

    the disk drives and the modem all tie into the motherboard.

    And your memory sticks.
