Hehe don't worry about it you've not gotten scammed!

Every 6800 is a Geforce.
Asus is one of the many manufacturers of the Geforce range of cards.

For example i have a XFX Geforce 6800GT.

Hope this puts your mind at ease

Geforce makes the core and the memory. The companies (like ASUS) put the cards together to the specification that Nvidia specifies (plus sometimes a stock overclock.)

Geforce doesn't make anything. Geforce is just the name that nvidia gives their range of graphics cards.

I double posted as the guy that posted after me posted an incorrect reply after i had already answered the original poster. Thus probably confusing him further. That ok?

Also, i've noticed that you have posted many times today just repeating what other people have said and you have the nerve to tell me when and when not to post?
