    I don't need, and can't possibly afford this video card. Is that it? Did I figure it out? What do I win?

    1.Typo in the first para:
    -whole?
    2.Query on the Just Cause 2 bench. Bokeh filter/GPU water sim enabled for nvidia cards only? (AMD cards are capable of neither)
    3.Disparity between the visual graphic showing the IQ settings for Metro 2033 (4x multisample AA/16xAF + PhysX) and text description (Adaptive AA and presumeably PhysX disabled).
    4. Typo in the text for HAWX 2
    5. Temp testing using OCCT is probably invalid. As stated in the previous page of the review, power regulation will throttle the GTX 580's performance and subsequent heat output when using this power virus. As stated by Anand "FurMark and OCCT are indeed throttled" -I assume that Anands "Program X" is Kombuster or EVGA's OC Scanner.
    6. LIkewise the power consumption figures are also skewed since the card was tested under Furmark. Peak load should be around +2% (engineering sample) to - 5 to 10% (retail card) of the GTX 480.
