I recently installed Kali Linux 2016.2 and successfully installed the appropriate drivers for a Nvidia GTX 970. I am running an intel(R) Core(TM) i7-5820K CPU @ 3.30GHz, X99 Gigabyte motherboard and 32 Gb of RAM.

The Problem:

I am noticing that the system is lagging while doing simple tasks like browsing the Internet. I have updated and upgraded the system and rebooted already. Running top shows very little hardware utilization. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated!
