I've just used taxonomy for organisation/grouping, and these modules 
http://drupal.org/project/directory and particularly

Will work with that quite well. For example choosing CPU, then AMD, then 
Dual Core, and then only being presented with the 4 Dual core CPU's.

Similar to how this site uses the car choices you make to narrow down 
the results when you click on the links on the left.

Similarly, the erp "item" module does complete import from CSV, creating 
nodes and also assigning taxonomy terms as best it can for manufacturer 
& category.

function erp_item_import in this file.


Its built and we use it to import daily from a .csv of 40k lines from 
multiple suppliers, thus keeping pricing up to date on a daily basis.
