Why nearly everyone blames the CPU for things like these. Well, Fedora always ran slow on my machine, I had Celeron 600 MHz and Fedora 3 ran hell slow on it, then I have AMD Athlon 64 2800+ and Fedora 7 again runs hell slow with frequent slow-motion jerks and now I have Pentium 4 in office and we have CentOS ( based off RHEL, RHEL is based off Fedora) and again my machine sometimes gives me jerks and goes to slow-mode many times.
Try switching to some better distro like Debian or Arch. First try to run a Knoppix or Ubuntu Live CD and if that CD runs slow again then there is some hardware problem. Most probably it will not, which means you need to get-off from RPM based package management, try Arch or Debian. Many will not agree with me but that is what I have observed.
