Sorry for replying just now, I've been away. Have you the same problem on both 
your PCs? Have you tried to login with a fresh account just to check that this 
is not a problem related to configuration? My PC has half the power 
of your and it's always smooth so your problem is really weird ;).
Other things I suggest to check are:
Compositing type: OpenGL
Mark Enable Direct Rendering
Unmark Use Vsync
OpenGL mode Texture from pixmaps
Let me know your progresses
