Help!!! Sansung laptop 300e4x-u09,Arch x86_64 GUI slow

Hi all:

I just bought a new laptop , Sansung 300e4x-u09 ,which has intel i3-2328 cpu , NVIDIA GeForce GT 620M graphic card , and 500GB harddisk , 4 GB RAM  ( I added 2 GB );
And I installed Archliux x86_64 using the 2012.10.06 install media following "The beginner's guide"

It boots to login manage (I tested slim and kdm) for a long time , and start the kde very slowly even xfce4  also slowly,  after installing  the intel graphic driver follow wiki , then reboot and  startx ,one cpu core used 100% , and the DE(xfce4) starts also slowly , and I can not logout or reboot computer in xfce ( I could do these before intall intel graphic driver ) and the harddisk's led blinks when start DE.

I tested Compiz-fusion , but fails...

I got errors when run "Xorg -configure" as root , it says Server terminated with error (2) , how does this happen .... sad if you know ,please tell me how to config Xorg correctly .

My harddisk partion (GPT partition table) :

sda1   nofs     2MB       for_grub2_core_img
sda2   xfs       50GB      /
sda3   xfs       50GB      /home
sda4   xfs       115GB   
sda5   xfs       100GB
sda6   xfs       100GB
sda7   reiserfs  16GB  /var

I used parted live CD to make partitions using default settings.

Now I want to reinstall Arch , I don't know whether the GPT or the 64 bit or the XFS FS affects the GUI speed,I intalled Arch 32bit half year ago ,using MBR partition table on a old PC,it ran fast ,I do not know why this happened on new laptop. sad
any suggestion on / partition FS , EXT4 or XFS or others ?
how do you get deal with Nvidia card and integrated intel graphic card , just shutdown the Nvidia card ?
any suggestion on optimize arch ?

Thanks

Why such crazy partion layout?

I installed Arch on my laptop(Leno  Thinkpad Edge E530)  some days ago my partion layut was the folling:

Drive 1 500GB:
Size       Mountpoint  Type    Comment
1 MB      none            none    for disk alligment
100 MB  /boot            ext2
30GB     /                    ext4
430GB   /home


I think they reason was your partion layout and maybe you don't installed the intel drivers.

I don't really think the partition layout has anything to do with a slow gui.

BTW, Thaodan, I like your computer!  I have the E430, and though it doesn't seem as bulletproof as a traditional TP, it still seems a very nice machine.

Yes the machine is very nice running it with KDE 4.9.2, nearly pure systemd (some migration undone), with bumblebee enabled, all extra buttons except folder button work out of the box, however tfand don't works.
