Anyone heard of the xfx manufactured card using the Geforce technology. I found a 256 mg on Tiger Direct for $99.00 but I dont want to waste money. Is it better to stay with the big boys ?

hehehehehe. Nvidia FUD!!! What's that, you ask?
FUD stands for Fear, Uncertainty, Doubt
It is a marketing technique used when a competitor launches a product that is both better than yours and costs less, i.e. your product is no longer competitive. Unable to respond with hard facts, scare-mongering is used via 'gossip channels' to cast a shadow of doubt over the competitors offerings and make people think twice before using it.
In general it is used by companies with a large market share, and the overall message is 'Hey, it could be risky going down that road, stick with us and you are with the crowd. Our next soon-to-be-released version will be better than that anyway'.
