The GeForce is the name of the GPU, and the people who make the card you got with the 6800 GPU are Asus.

It's a good card none the less. Asus is a decent brand.

asus is a rather reliable brand with rather good support,t here are a lot of rather Iffy brands out there.. you got one of the better ones

geforces are not propriritary, there are several manufactures for the cards. nvidia just developes the chips.
