Very general question so a general answer is you have to look at the standards and the compatibility lists if available. For example if you have an AGP motherboard, a PCI Express video card is not going to work, you'd need an AGP card. PCI Express cards will generally work with any PCI Express motherboard, but there may be other limitations, for example high power video cards may need more power than a systems PSU can supply or may not physically fit in a small case due to size. Motherboards can only take specific types of CPU, depending on the CPU socket type. For example, a Socket 1150 motherboard should take any Haswell based Intel CPU, but it is worth checking the motherboards CPU support list, as there can be exceptions...
