Let's start at the beginning:

What is the output of "lspci | grep VGA"

Also, what video driver are you using to drive it?

(Check the output of /var/log/Xorg.0.log to be sure, but you could also

[hennebry@localhost log]$ grep river Xorg.0.log

look in your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file if you have one.)

Section "Device"

Driver "radeon"

BusID "PCI:1:0:0"

Finally, what is the result of "glxinfo | grep direct"

[hennebry@localhost X11]$ glxinfo | grep direct
IRQ's not enabled, falling back to busy waits: 2 0
direct rendering: Yes
[hennebry@localhost X11]$

That should tell me exactly which video "card" is in your machine, which
video driver is being used, and whether or not DRI is being used. We
can go from there.

Could having an AGP card be causing my problems?
My computer doesn't do PCIX.

Thank you for your patience.

I've got an AGP card in my machine and I've never had a problem. I've
switched monitors and Linux distributions a few times too.
