I'm guessing here but maybe I can help you. It seems that you're using the 
openradeon driver, because the ati drivers works with 9600 and newers. I 
already post some issues in the kubuntu mailing list about the openradeon and 
kde4. It have huge problems, making a simple action like hovering over a mail 
in kmail consumes over 80% of CPU power. I get no answer, try some tweaks in 
xorg with no results and that was a show stopper for me, I had to return to 
kde3. I use a Mobility Radeon 9000IGP (misdetected by the kernel as 9100) and 
a Celeron at 2.8Ghz with 512MB RAM. I try the same kde4 in a similar but 
Intel powered graphics computer and worked just fine, even when the Intel 
chip (GPU) have fewer graphic features. So I guess there are major issues 
with kde4 and the radeon driver.
