Hmm.. Is this a troll? Or have you no idea of computers?

So, just in case the second option is true:
If you configured "all features of animation" then of course the CPU and the 
GPU have a lot more computation to do - so your computer is slower.

And when you use a higher resolution the "same graphic card" has a lot more 
pixel to draw, and more things to put in memory, so it's slower.

Nothing but normal. If you have a "stink-normal AMD-32 bit system" it means 
you have an *old* system. KDE 4 won't turn it into a *new* system, and 
actually everything you just did is stupid, because you are trying to use 
features on your old system that have been developped for more powerful 

Keep KDE 3.x and use your higher resolution, that's it
