Genuine Nvidea vs. made under licence

When I selected an Nvidea adapter from the SW approved list I did not notice any caution about genuine vs. made under licence.

I did not understand why Leadtek's name was on the box and after poking around for a driver that would work I concluded that Leadtek was one of two companies that make Nvidea adapters under licence and write their own drivers with different names from the genuine driver.

Has my ignorance caused me disadvantage as a SW 2009 user?
