Choppiness, as you put it, again coud be memory. If clean boot takes time, do the memory first. I think that may be the cause.

Im assuming that you expect me to say it has no impact, well Im not going to say that. If you do not have sufficient ram your browser will display pages slowly and hence effect internet surfing, albeit in a slight manner.
