Purpose and Functions
This is a card that allows you to access specific networks, the method of how it gains the network depends on what network it’s suppose to access. There are 2 types of network cards:
Wireless network cards- This is when the network card looks for a network through a wireless connection.
Ethernet network cards- This is the same as Wireless network cards except it’s with a Ethernet connection.
Ethernet network cards are mostly found and used in motherboards as it connects to the router or hub and then connects to the internet.
Network cards are also used to transfer data on one computer to another by it being an interface between the computer and cable. Network cards also change the data that come from cables into bytes so the CPU of the motherboard can read it correctly.

When loading a game, the CPU can only take as much information at once, this is when the graphics card then takes this information so that the CPU can then gain more information as a graphics card, also known as a GPU, has a larger storage space compared to the CPU, this help to load programs for games, pictures etc.
PC convert the data that it’s been given into electronic signals that are then sent to the monitor. The monitor then takes these electronic signals and turn them into games and images that are clear. It’s fast enough to handle more that one type of media at once and for them to load properly.
