    1: chipset is a set of electronic components in an integrated circuit that manages the data flow between the processor, memory and peripherals. Chipsets are usually designed to work with a specific family of microprocessors. Because it controls communications between the processor and external devices, the chipset plays a crucial role in determining system performance.
    2: in laymens terms its just a way to make 2 same brand video cards work as one for faster rendering on one monitor, ( i.e: both nvidia or both amd)
    3: m,2 ports are next generation ports, they replace msata, just extra ports for 3g, wifi, or hdd etc.
    4: same as m.2 port but uses mini pcie layout.
    5: video that comes with your motherboard, on older intel mother boards its an intel HD gma series, (sucks for anything but displaying the basics) and on amd motherboards its the RADEON series, you can pretty much game on this systems at low res though. also, intel has signed a contract with amd for use of their gpus.
    6: error correction code , basically prevents memory errors, at an expense/performance trade off
    hope this helps
