Nvidia is the chip manufacturer, the other name is the Card manufacturer.

It's like with Pentium processors. Intel makes the pentium processor, but it's found in Dells, Gateway, IBM, HP, etc.

So, one Intel P4 can be in many PCs brands AND one Nvidia ship can be in many Graphics card brands.

There isn't too much difference in the card brands really (although everyone has their favorites).

And graphics cards shouldn't affect your internet speed... that's the modem.

graphics cards can affect your PC speed though.

This is off topic, thus it's moved.
