Finished my reformat, it went smoothly and was actually quite a bit easier than I thought it would be. My screen definitely has the sparkles. I didn't really know what it meant before, but it does look like there's a kind of screen door over the top. When you're more than a couple of feet away, it's not nearly as noticeable. Otherwise, the screen looks great. I'm also amazed at how quiet the machine is. The CD drive is a little loud, but that's typical. I ran 3DMark05 after the format and scored just under 4900. This is using the Dell stock 6800 drivers though. I'll play around with some other drivers this evening when I get home from work. First impressions are very positive. I can't wait to try some games.
