You have a problem with your ktorrent/ctorrent installations. I've run ktorrent
on my Slackware box with several active torrents, and at most it took 6% of one
CPU. See my other post about rtorrent, which takes 1% or less with many more
torrents active. rtorrent is the client to use, but being CLI, you'll have to
memorize some of the keyboard commands to utilize it fully.
