KDE really annoying!!

Ok, this has been pissing me off long enough....
In KDE when im navagating through directories, it keeps freezing for a few seconds before I can click on any icon/button.

Its REALLY annoying. Anyone else had this experience?

Kde is a resource hog. If you have a slower computer you'd best look for another window manager that's not so bloated.

If I am right it only does that if you have it configured to do that. By default I think it's set to show previews. I prefer KDE over Gnome. You can disable alot of the stuff that may be slowing down KDE. Have you tried Gnome? If so, does the same problem occur?
