Tube amp - tube preamp + tube poweramp.
Valve amp = tube amp.
Head - preamp + poweramp without speakers.
Cabinets - 'box' that contains speakers
Preamp - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Preamplifier

A tube amp is an amp that uses preamp and power tubes to produce sound. A solid state amp doesn't have tubes. Most people prefer tube amps because of the tone difference. A valve amp is the same thing as a tube amp.

You have to buy a head and a cab together. This is called a halfstack. A head and two cabs would be a full stack. An amplifier that is a head and cab in one is called a combo amp. Most people have tube combos around here because nobody really needs a halfstack. Most beginners start out with SS combos.

Also, tubes are way louder than SS. If you have 100 watts of tube, it could literally take a house down when it's not even cranked.
