Download HDTune and do a quick benchmark for performance, also do a quick block scan.

Are your SeaGate's by any chance 7200.11 or ES2 series?

Wow you definitely shouldn't be having lag issues with those specs if your 100% sure its not your internet.

I'd do what Grantofhell suggested and test your hard drive out.

HDD seems to be doing fine. But I still think the lag is in the drive. That's normally one of the causes for slow performance. Download SeaTools from SeaGate.com and perform self tests on your HDD's. The 7200.11 series drives are know to have VERY common failures when shipped with SD1A firmware.

I would highly recommend an upgrade to AD14 if your drive has SD1A firmware on it.

It's possible that you didn't install the correct video drivers. That will slow everything down. Especially the transparant selecting effect when choosing multiple folders.
