Question A simple and complicated question

Ok, so I wanna learn to build my PC. I have most of it down, but is there a good guide or can someone put down what means what on any given component? I have been looking up most of the components or features I dont understand piece by piece but a lot of the sites I found are lacking in explaining in regards to building a PC...
An example.
Chipsets: What exactly do chipsets do on the MOBO, I understand they control certain aspects of the MOBO but do they control compatability with other components?
I realize this is a broad question which is why I am asking for a forum or site...I wanna understand completely the PC I build, from simple Sata connections to understanding chipsets and all the little things with ram/CPU/vid cards.

Appreciate any help on the topic.
