    PS brush lag normal?

    Edit: I think I was just paranoid, after reviewing a lot of online painting videos it seems this is just normal. I just never noticed. thanks anyways.

    Is a slight brush drag normal in photoshop? Got a new PC with win7 and PS didn't run too well at first due to all that built in tablet crap. After getting all that sorted out and having photoshop run faster than ever, i noticed there's a slight delay as to where my brush cursor is and the stroke following it. It's not lagging or anything, everything's running great and smoothly, it's just i notice my cursor is a little ahead of my strokes.

    Most of the time the cursor is still touching the stroke, but when i make a large stroke I'll notice the cursor going up a cm or two ahead of it.
    I'll include a screenshot to show what i mean. It does this both with my cintiq and a mouse, so I'm thinking it's photoshop related. I may just be paranoid and haven't noticed it over the years. Thanks in advance.

    Is your brush spacing abnormally low? Like 1? If so, it will result in brush lag.
