    Only the power supply, 

    because it converts the line voltage to what the computer needs.

    Only the power supply needs to support the necessary AC current, since everything beyond the power supply is DC.

    HOWEVER, many power supplies have a switch to accommodate this.  It's best to check your power supply specs to see if it supports 220v & if there's a manual switch for it (as newer computers have an automatic voltage switch to simplify things).  It's important to double-check your power supply specs & change it if your current one doesn't support 220v.

    If the power supply that came with your computer is 120v, simply get a 220v to 120v step-down adapter, and use that. the parts in your PC definitely do not use 220v

    Only the power supply would be 220V. Everything else gets power from the PSU which converts the AC power to 12V/5V/3.3V DC power.
