Submission + - Making sense of CPU and GPU model numbers (pricewatch.com)

b4dc0d3r writes: How do you make sense of the various model numbers or naming schemes for CPUs, graphics cards, and the related chipsets? All I want is something that will run Oblivion and output full 1080 video to a TV. Last time I built my own computer I just went to Pricewatch, made a few easy choices, and everything came to my door. Do I really have to research the difference between Core i5, Core 2 Duo, Pentium 4, Pentium D, Semperon, Athlon, Phenom... and that's just the processor. Is there a reference somewhere? Sure Wikipedia has some info, but I'm in for a lot of reading. In short, how the hell do you buy a computer these days?
