Here are a few thing that should help. 1: get ride of KDE... try fluxbox... KDE makes a horrid wm as it eats a lot of resources 2: start optimizing stuff... 2.1: copy /etc/defualts/make.conf to /etc/make.conf and set that optimize stuff 2.2: make a optimized kernel 2.3: do a buildworld 2.4: recompile X 2.5: recompile gtk, gtk+, and etc 2.6: recompile any thing else that you use a lot and what ever depenecies they use 2.7: above all get ride of KDE
