    when? what are you running?

    otherwise:

    -open top in a terminal and watch it, it will show you where your CPU
    cycles are going

    -turn off desktop effects

    -disable or delete beagle

    -turn off openSUSE Updater

    -pick a less resource demanding theme
    --no round corners
    --solid color, no shading or 3D looking window frames
    --etc

    -run a solid color background

    -run less demanding applications (like, use pine for mail, not
    thunderbird, etc)

    -buy a faster processor

    -buy faster hard drives

    -buy a video card with better drivers for Linux

    -add memory

    -add video ram


    which is best for you?? no idea..

    I think what palladium may be suggesting is that we need more information about your system.

    Graphics card in particular might help.
