Geforce is under NVidia

Edit: Ok, that doesn't help much since you don't know. Geforce is a certain line of products, owned all by NVidia

I don't think it really matters... just only the model and maybe how much power it takes if your looking for battery life.

it was most likely intergrated which uses the ram for video memory so 512mb is completely normal

if it's not for gaming then the vid card doesn't matter.
If it's for gaming then give us the models of what u are looking at and we will help u choose the right one for u.
