help understanding cisco 6500 products

I am in market for a 6506, but I am clueless as to what the differences are between all the different Sup engines, fabric, etc.,.

Does anyone know a good website that cleary explains all this. I tried searching cisco's site, but it is not very straightforward.

I do know that the Sup 2 is 32Gbps fabric, with expandability via a fabric module. But I need to the specs of Sup 1A. Also, which ethernet modules are fully subscribed in bandwidth, or which ones are under subscribed (i.e. 48pt GigE, the card is only 8Gbps, and so on).

Any links or pointers would be great.

thanks john
