I am trying to figure out if I have a slow graphics card or slow computer.
Are there any graphics tests I can perform that will point in one direction or another?
John, you could start here ...
Followed up by the SW Rx ...
SolidWorks has a performance benchmark test.

What are the symptoms you experience?
1)After I rotate a component in the assembly, it takes a minute for my cursor to come back after it stops "thinking"
2)Sometimes when I drag a new part into the assembly, it will not allow me to select if for a couple of minutes.
(even though I can see it on the screen)
Are you aware of the recent slowdowns being caused by a Win10 update which allows/causes hardware drivers to be updated automatically? On my Dell Precision laptop this did cause a problem. You can find info from the MicroSoft site to stop the automatic updates. Run SW Rx diagnostics to see if the graphics card driver is supported.
if your using NVIDIA GPU try checking the driver version avoid the 376.XX driver version its the buggy one you can use the 375.xx but id rather recommend nvidia driver higher than 376.xx because windows 10 will automatically update 375.xx to 376.xx
Check "GPU Load" (frame rate tends to slow as it nears 100%) and "Memory Used" (you don't want to be using more memory than video card has, things get very slow if you do)
