Could be processor speed or inadequate video card (or both).

I had problems with just the models taking a long time to regenerate on my screen - I updated my video card, and that problem went away. Apparently, I had plenty of processing power, but my vid card wasn't able to keep up with the info that was being crammed into it.

Hope that helps...
