Sorry for top-posting, I have taken a clue now. 
I deactivated Animations in Gnome (Tweak Tool - Appearance), this
appears to have helped, dragging windows around is not so laggy and
video playback does not appear to be crashing, and is running more
smoothly, however the video playback is not really smooth. 

>Anil's log from about 3+ hours ago shows he's using the modeset(0) Xorg driver
What does this mean?? Is there any other driver for me to try??

Please help me, do I really have the right driver and firmware for my
graphics card already?? Looking at package linux-image-amd64 in Synaptic
shows 2 versions 4.9+79 (now), 4.9+80 (testing), this upgrade has been
suggested by the automatic update app in Gnome. What does (now) and
(testing) mean in Synaptic there. I have left my sources.list as is
after install, "stretch" is the keyword, will my pc stay on stretch once
it is released or continue upgrading to "testing"??  

thanks a lot,
