Default Graphics Card Questions

To be honest I have very little knowledge when it comes to Video Cards, I was never really into computers or anything I just knew a little bit about them but in the past couple months I have learned a ton and I may choose my field in EE to be DSP (digital signal processing) which would be processor like design...but anyway back on topic...could someone take the time to explain the different key terms and what they mean for a video card, or refer me to a link that explains it...for example pipelines? 3d shader...yeah i could use some help lol

TIA!!!!!

-KJ
