    been noticing some minor problems on the graphics side that might slow the overall performance of my system....

    whenever the dock animates via background apps alert, keyboard input/response seemed to slow a bit.....

    the same goes with expose and dashboard transition when DVD's playing in the background....

    and DVD Player seems to take up loads of proc power as well.... close to 40%....

    has anyone experience such symptoms.....? or is it just me....? :(

    I think this is more simply the nature of Mac OS X than anything else. I noticed similar things to what you are talking about when using Tiger on my PowerMac. It doesn't do it as much on Panther but I use Panther on my Dual 1.8 becuaes it makes for a more pleasant working experience for me. I would not worry too much. If it is not slowing down any graphics work or anything of that sort then don't sweat it.
