Slow GUI on Win XP with a 3 GHz CPU? Well, for one, the CPU doesn't matter much. It's the video drivers that really make the difference.

I'm running Win x64 on a Athlon 3800 X2 with a nvidia 7800 card. When I ran it without the Nvidia drivers, the GUI was crap just like you describe. After installing the drivers, everything happens pretty much instantly.
