Raise the RAM up a bit too, but not too awful far cause its probly not overclocking RAM. Then see if the game runs any smoother. My bet is that it will.

StarCraft 2 runs 60+FPS on "Ultra" graphic settings on my old computer.

My system is as follows:
- Dell XPS 420 (Modified) Code Named: "JetFire"
- Intel Core2Quad 2.4GHz 4 Core CPU (under-clocked to 1.6GHz)
- 4GB 800MHz DDR2 RAM
- 1GB DDR3 nVidia GT 240 Graphic Card (fanless)
(current nVidia drivers approved by Ubuntu team)
- Creative Sound Blaster Audigy SE PCI sound card
- Ubuntu 10.04 Linux 32bit Final
- Wine 1.2 Final
- StarCraft 2 v1.0.2 (current)
(1024x768 window/graphics setting on "Ultra" / 60+ FPS)

Sorry it does not work on your state-of-the-art computer...
(older technology is always better for a Linux box though)
