Outline Windows instead of Redraw during resize

I've been using XFree (with Gnome/KDE depending on my mood) for a while, and am really getting sick of the following:

When I resize or move a window, the processor tries to redraw the entire window and its contents again and again ~60 times a second as I move or resize it, which (1) looks hideously ugly, (2) puts an unnecessary load on my processor, and (3) makes it alltogether difficult to resize windows.

I'm trying to figure out where the settings are for changing so the window's OUTLINE is what signifies the [future] final position of the resized/moved window while I'm actively resizing or moving it. Does someone know how to do this?

open up KDE control center, click on desktop>window behavior
on the right will be some tabs, select "Moving"
and change whatever window actions you don't want/like.............
