I just found out today that there's an "Asus GeForce graphics card". I didn't know that Asus also make graphic card?
I always thought that GeForce is Nividia?
From what I understand there are three major Graphic card makers Nividia, AMD and ATI, right?

What you always thought is correct but your understanding is wrong
There are two main graphics card providers (or shall we say chip), Nvidia and ATI. AMD bought out ATI a couple of years back so AMD now own ATI graphics cards. AMD still make CPU chips like Intel do
Basically you either own an Nvidia or ATI graphics card and it's Nvidia who use the name Geforce
Asus are a Brand name and therefore could potentially market graphics cards made by Nvidia or ATI. Asus do infact only tend to make Nvidia based graphics cards.
So you could have a graphics card make by lots of different manufacturers but will only feature an ATI or an Nvidia chip --- i7 3770k @ 4.6 | Asus Z77 | GTX670 | 16GB Corsair Vengeance 2133 | 120GB OCZ Vertex 3 SSD | HAF X | Xonar Essence STX | Dual Monitors | Sennheiser PC350
