Xorg often taking a lot of CPU, whole system slow

Changing browser or switch to 64bit are useless suggestions.
Most likely something with your video-driver/setup is wrong.
What graphic card to you use? Are you using a composition manager?

Try running sysprof (or oprifile) while you experience the slowness,
this will more or less give some insights whats going wrong.
