First let me explain I will be fetching a lot of records from tables, I will not be using ARecord as I wont' be updating or deleting data for now. So I think I will using CDbCommand or CDbCommandBuilder to fetch the data. This is right?

I've looked at the CDbCommand and I've managed to get the results with the following code:
$connection = Yii::app()->db;
$sql = "SELECT * FROM Hotels LIMIT 10";
$command = $connection->createCommand($sql);
$data = $command->query();
$this->render('index', $data);

But I will be doing some complex queries with sorting and criteria, should I use CDbCommand or CDbCommandBuilder?
I can't seem to find much information about the CDbCommandBuilder, is there any good place to see this documentation?

Sorry if all the questions are so noob.

for direct calling queries I think the simple CDbCommand have all do you need;

another way:

$connection=new CDbConnection($dsn,$username,$password);
After the DB connection is established, one can execute an SQL statement like the following: 
$command->execute();   // a non-query SQL statement execution
// or execute an SQL query and fetch the result set
// each $row is an array representing a row of data
foreach($reader as $row){

trying build code for Generate complete CRUD source code with YII... any help?

In my understanding CDbCommandBuilder is the "engine" that is used by AR to build its SQL statements.
