Everything is running slowly...

Everything I do on my Linux box seems to be running slow, and jerky. I'm using an Asus board with Sis chipset on it. I got the drivers for that working but games, flash, and other things that use a extensive graphix seems to run slow. And on top of that, all my windows, programs also act the same way. And I know they shouldn't, any ideas? Check my sig for machine spec... its the one thats running linux

What video card do you have?

I'm assuming it is integrated, but you never know.

SiS chipset

Am assuming you mean 512 mb physical RAM. That may or may not have any effect on the shared or dedicated video RAM.

Slow/jerky graphics usually indicates:

1. Insufficient video RAM
2. 3d acceleration either not installed or supported.

Have similar situation with an onboard SiS 635

Also Celerons are pretty good, but don't have the onboard cache RAM

Also try disableing any unnecessary system services

good luck
