Maybe try a different driver for your graphics card. There is a setting where you can enable downloading propietary drivers that I believe is turned off by default. You might want to enable it and try the manufacturer's driver if there is one. Of course, I'm sure you know anything like that can be "laggy" compared to media played from your hard drive just because of bandwidth. If all else fails and your sure bandwidth isn't the problem maybe you want to spring for a better graphics card. Or if you get better results running the same hardware under a different OS maybe it means the available drivers have a way to go yet and maybe you can wait it out.
