I was reading the back of my XFX 6800 GT box, which pretends its a comic book, and noticed some typos I thought I would share:
"Outlaw flew pass all the traps and glided through the game flawlessly."
Should be 'past'.
"Though he didn't wind the trillion dollar prize..."
Should be 'Win'.

Now I know why people on Counter-Strike can't spell.

You should play Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow and go to the website.... quite a few errors :\.

here's a "typo" on my PNY verto 6800gt box.

It says it comes with a disk with demos and drivers. Upon opening there's a note that says you gotta go to the website for drivers...no cd!

I see this all the time - be it in motherboard owners manuals or on video card boxes. For a lot of the employees, English clearly isn't their first language and it's reflected in strange and funny typos. I'd like to start a company that writes manuals for these companies so there won't be errors like these.

Hehe are you sure you have an Nvidia card and not some cheap knock-off like Nvidio? :D
