Default Weird issue with windows since I installed ATI driver

I installed the Catalyst driver (from manufacturer) for my ATI Radeon
HD 4550 card and it is working (X acceleration works, good resolution,
etc.) but I noticed something weird. Now when I move a window it no
longer shows the window static as it is being moved, it's like it
keeps redrawing it as I move it. So as I drag it it will move it a
little then redraw the window, move it a little, then redraw the
window, etc. Also I noticed in Firefox when I scroll it does the same
thing, instead of keeping the text fixed it redraws the text as the
scroller moves. i really don't like this. It didn't do this in Ubuntu
and I used to same driver. Is this an X thing or a metacity thing or a
gnome thing? How can I fix this? Here is my /etc/X11/xorg.conf

# xorg.conf (X.Org X Window System server configuration file)
#
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.
#
# Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page.
# (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
#
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
# package.
#
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
# again, run the following command:
# sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg
