I also agree. Although I prefer KDE, Gnome usually runs faster for me on older hardware, unless I remove ALL effects on KDE and keep a bare bones install.
Edit: As per the original comment re: Fedora, I attempted to install it on a P3 825 Mhz 160mb RAM GeforceII, and it was molasses. Slower than OpenSUSE 10.2 (which was really slow on that system to begin with).
Ubuntu/Xubuntu/PCLOS all ran fine on it, so it wasn't a KDE/Gnome issue.
