What sort of performance problems?  Is some particular action slow, or is 
it a general sluggish feeling while in X?

If you're using Gnome (and possibly KDE), it can seem a bit sluggish if 
the hostname defined on your machine does not resolve.  You can solve this 
by either setting your hostname to localhost, or adding your hostname into 
/etc/hosts as (or your static IP if you have one).

If it's not a general X feeling slow issue, provide a bit of details, and 
we might be able to provide a better awnser.
