go out and buy the fastest computer there is.....

but first you might like to tell us what computer you have, and also do a search for your card in the graphics card data base, to see if there are any issues with it. you can find a link in the sticky in one of the forums.
maybe try updating your drivers as well.

sounds like you have an ati graphics card which has problems with xor drawing, bitmap drawing [glDrawPixels?], and perhaps some other things
[different people have different problems. box selection has only like a quarter second lag on my radeon 9600se]

you're more-or-less out of luck, and it's not really blender's fault.

probably an ati card,

turn down the hardware accelleration settings is usually the solution that works best...

If that doesn't work installing a different driver sometimes helps, search for ATI in the forums.
