Got a small issue I can’t seem to figure out. Might be normal behavior for all I know.
Just for the record, I have used Linux for a whole week now on my desktop computer after being a DOS/Windows user my whole life. I chose to use Fedora with KDE. Exception being running Debian for server tasks, like FTP. I know a few basic things, but overall not experienced.
So far everything has been fairly smooth with a few hiccups along the way, like spending 2-3 hours figuring out why I had no audio. I managed to iron out all these things, but one issue remains.
Everytime I open a new application, be it terminal, System Settings, Firefox, whatever, there is a couple of seconds where everything stutters. Most noticable if I play a movie on youtube or something that is in motion. Audio is not affected by this, only the graphical side of things.
This isn’t a huge problem, but it still bothers me a little as I would expect the computer to be powerful enough to handle this in a smooth manner.

I ran fpaste, link here: https://paste.centos.org/view/2e67fefa
I am using the nVidia drivers, and have tried turning composition and full composition on and off in the settings without any change. I do not experience any screen tearing. Everything runs great except when launching applications.
Is this stutter, chopping, lag, or what to call it, for a couple of seconds normal behavior, or should starting applications be a smooth process? I do not know if Windows did something similar, as I literally got my current hardware last week and installed Fedora first thing.
