    Do you have other expansion packs installed? Do you make sure to close all other background rasks that are running, such as antivirus software?

    Even if it says 256 MB is the minimum, if you have expansion packs with it you will need more or it will be jerky. More makes the game alone run better. I started with 256MB, got tired of the slow moving choppiness on the screen, added another 256MB. But after installing the last expansion pack it started going slow again, so I added another 1GB RAM. No more slowness here. So if you have other expansion packs installed I would definitely say you need more RAM.

    I think its your RAM. I'm not sure. The requirement is 256MB RAM but yours is 512 Mb. I'm not sure if your RAM is the problem.
