"sudo lshw"

You're going to get a lot more info that just the CPU and GPU, ut it does give you tthe output you wanted...model numbers, not generic "Core2Duo 2.8GHz" etc. Here is a tiny example of what I get-

description: CPU
product: AMD Phenom(tm) II X2 550 Processor

description: VGA compatible controller
product: G98 [GeForce 8400 GS]
