Task Management for linux

Is there something similar to the task manager in windows for linux. Something that can show you the processes on your machine as well as what resources are being consumed and by what process?

I know of pstree, which is very useful, but it doesn't give me the metrics of what processes or consuming resource-wise?

gnome-taskmanager (well it is gnome-something) is very good IMO.
