Default X, firefox and kwin load using nvidia drivers, let's collect experiences

Hi there,
I was just wondering if the load on my CPUs are normal or too much; actually, even if I don't do anything, the CPUs load seems to be high

the biggest CPU eaters are:
kwin (20%)
firefox (15%, but much more higher with flash animations and that monster of npviewer)
plasma (15%)

I am asking to my self: what kwin, firefox and plasma are doing when I am not touching anything?? did someone tried with other drivers (nouveau or nv or vesa)?
