Default Xorg sluggishness

My system: 7.0-RELEASE #0
Hardware: Dell Optiplex GX270

Hello, since I installed a few Xorg and graphics card driver updates a few weeks ago my desktop has become very sluggish, I don't know whether its Xorg or the graphics driver but the drawing of objects on screen and minimising and restoring windows is now very slow and it wasn't like this before I updated the Xorg and driver related ports.

Is this to do with the gettimeofday() issue that FreeBSD had/has with Xorg? See below for my hardware and installed ports details:

Graphics Card:

vgapci0@pci0:0:2:0: class=0x030000 card=0x01511028 chip=0x25728086 rev=0x02 hdr=0x00
vendor = 'Intel Corporation'
device = '82865G Integrated Graphics Device'
class = display

Display Driver


Xorg Server/library version

xorg-libraries-7.3_2 X.org libraries meta-port
xorg-server-1.4_8,1 X.Org X server and related programs

Did you change the Driver value in xorg.conf to "intel"?

I didn't change anything in xorg.conf but here is the relevant section I believe:

Section "Device"
### Available Driver options are:-
### Values: <i>: integer, <f>: float, <bool>: "True"/"False",
### <string>: "String", <freq>: "<f> Hz/kHz/MHz"
### [arg]: arg optional
#Option "NoAccel" # [<bool>]
#Option "SWcursor" # [<bool>]
#Option "ColorKey" # <i>
#Option "CacheLines" # <i>
#Option "Dac6Bit" # [<bool>]
#Option "DRI" # [<bool>]
#Option "NoDDC" # [<bool>]
#Option "ShowCache" # [<bool>]
#Option "XvMCSurfaces" # <i>
#Option "PageFlip" # [<bool>]
Identifier "Card0"
Driver "intel"
VendorName "Intel Corporation"
BoardName "82865G Integrated Graphics Controller"
BusID "PCI:0:2:0"

As I said, it was working fine until I updated some X related ports and drivers.
