The cpu (central processing unit) as it does all the controls and processing that the computer does (the brain) with greater than 3m circuits in the Pentium III chips. All instructions are processed by the CPU.

However the CPU does not work in isolation and all the other hardware are also necessary.

Answer # 1 is correct, however the CPU is considered the brain. The central nervous system in a PC is the Mother board as this is the conduit for the CPU to interface with the other devices, (ie: Video, Disk Drives, Key Board, Mouse, Printer, Modem/NIC, and anything else you want to plug in)
