Whenever I use a web browser to look at websites, while the page is loading everything else slows to a crawl. The curser will jump across the screen and my music will get all choppy, and continue that way until the entire site has loaded. I have tried 3 differnt browsers, I have tried it without having Xmms on, but it is still very choppy. I really do not think I should be getting this kind of performance by just using a web browser.
My specs are:
Athlon XP 1900+
GeForce FX 5200Ultra
built-in nForce ethernet
I connect to the internet through the ethernet card, which connects to a Linksys router, then to a cable modem. I do not know if maybe there is something running that is interfering with my performance or what the problem could be. This is a nwe install, I just did it last night. Maybe someone has some ideas on how I could figure out specifically what the problem is?
edit: forgot to mention my distro
I am using Mandrake 9.1 running KDE
