It's pretty simple. Taxi costs too much and there isn't a direct train.

BUT

SFO has a BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) station. Take BART to the Richmond BART Station (you will probably need to transfer a line or two, but it's simple).

At the Richmond BART station, you can get on a train run by Amtrak called the Capitol Corridor. That will take you to Sacramento.

This will get you there, depending on when you land, as the Capitol Corridor has limited hours.

Honestly, your best bet is to just rent a car. It will cut anywhere from 1-4 hours (or more, depending on train schedules) from your trip and the route is pretty easy. Leave SFO and take 101 North, merge onto I-80 over the Bay Bridge. Stay on 80 North until you hit Sacramento.
