Performance problem with VMWare

Just installed CentoOS on VMWare workstation 9.0, selected gnome. The graphic driver installed is VMware SVGA II Adapter. Performance is sluggish. I started the system monitor to check CPU usage and the 4 cores of the virtual machine were busy at around 50% !!! Further investigation indicated gnome-shell is the one using that. The more graphic intensive the higer the processor usage. To get 50% usage of the 4 core, all that was running is System Monitor !
