At this point I'm just nitpicking sentence fluidity though.
Fact-wise it all looks good.
If somebody tries to correct you, don't lose your composure, if you know right off the bat that they are right just flow with it "ah that's a good point blah blah blah" or if you're unsure, say something like "according to my knowledge/research, blah blah, but it could be possible that blah blah".
It's a public speaking class, not Computer Technology 101; I'm sure you'll be more graded on your presentation and composure than having up-to-date, solid accurate facts. The teacher probably won't know the difference anyway.
Hmm, good point. The reason why I started with the mobo is because it connects everything together, and then point off the parts that are connected later.

Yeah, but those classes goes into details, and most of the class time is just doing work and not lectures (at least the classes I took). I am keeping it simple on just how a computer works, I won't be explaining the different sockets, memory, how to know which one is good, what I recommend and etc.
