Most of these problems are caused by graphics card drivers.  KDE 4 stresses 
parts of the drivers previously unused.  All the major three providers are 
working on the problems.  As a workaround you sometimes have to turn off all 
desktop effects,  In other cases editing xorg.conf helps.  It's worth reading 
http://userbase.kde.org/GPU-Performance for some tips.

For a greater understanding of what's happening in the driver world, read this 
article about Intel drivers:
