Parts slower than assemblies!

I tried searching for a similar issue but they all seem so unique...

anyways, I'm running Solidworks 2007 SP3.1, and I have a strange performance problem. With a full assembly (probably ~100 parts), it's perfectly fine. But when I try to edit a single part, it slows to a crawl - the exact opposite of what you'd expect. I notice that it's a very strong function of the size of the window - if I make it ~10% smaller, the performance can increase quite a bit. I didn't have these problems with older versions (2003, 2005).

Computer is a Pentium 4 with 3GB RAM.

Any suggestions?
