What does your xorg.conf look like? Could be a video driver issue.

True, what display driver are you running, that would be in xorg.conf. It's either 'vesa', 'nv', or 'nvidia'.

Personally, I think it's KDE

you gotta give some hints...

do you only got problems in linux? only in X? only in specific programs?
any special programs running in the background( ps -eH )?
do you only could programs when surfing the web? (=> check your connection)

maybe you could elaborate on your use of the word "lag"?

...could be an hardware/driver issue
