    Your CPU usage depends largly on how much you have running at one time
    You must also consider all of the background services that Vista i
    running to. The more you have running, the higher the average CPU usag

    It should not have an affect on the lag time unless you start maxin
    out your CPU towards 100%

    have you resolved this problem?

    I have the same situation here

    my conf is:
    intel q6600
    gigabyte p35-ds3r
    2x2 GB Geil
    Asus gf6800gt
    Sound Blaster Audigy 2
    150gb raptor(jmicronSATA), 2x500gb wd

    windows xp x64 works fine, but in vista ultimate x64 everything is so
    choppy like you said, but not only aero, all 3d programs-games as well,
    sometimes I also get some artefacts in opera and firefox.

    I tried several versions of nvidia drivers, different bios versions
    including latest f13a, memory configurations-single and dual channel,
    6gb and 8gb, and it was even worse.

    Only solution that I could find is to set manually maximum memory in
    msconfig to 3584. After that everything works perfectly, no matter if I
    put 4,6 or 8gb in mobo.

    Can anyone tell me what is this about?? Ill try to remove audigy
    tomorrow, to see if maybe that is the cause.

    Yeah my speed issues seemed to be resolved, but after vista did a fe
    more updates I started getting errors like crazy on just abou
    everything. Yahoo messenger even crashed my computer everytime I opene
    it because of DEP. And I even turned DEP on and off as admin over an
    over and restarted but I could never access it to change any options i

    So overall after all this... I've reformatted installed vista AND X
    and am currently dual booting both. I'm on XP right now but I'll switc
    over to vista once I feel its finally fixed... which will probably b
