Yes, I'm a newbie with the computer, heh heh. I just need a quick and simple overview of video cards. I know I have one - 100 or so MB. But I need to install software for it. what's the difference between NVIDIA, ATI, and Radeon? All I need are just quick, simple answers (I'm just newbie :) ) I appreciate all help.

Radeon is made by ATI, Nvidia and ATI are both graphic chipset makers, but ATI does produce its own cards and not just the graphic chipset.
ATI is a company based out of Ontario, Canada
Nvidia is based out of California.

If you need to install drivers for your card, first determine what you have,
If you have an ATI card go here: http://www.ati.com
If you have a Nvidia card go here: http://www.nvidia.com

Nvidia and ATI are the 2 biggest ones. Radeon is part of ATI. I personally like Nvidia. I always have. One month Nvidia will have a faster and better one than ATI, then next month, vice versa. Take your pick.
