Even though this phone is still a decent contender, it is going to lag from time to time on JB/KK. They are much larger systems and require more resources. It's amazing that the devs managed to get us such a smooth KitKat experience really.
That being said... I have managed to keep 4.4 running fairly smoothly on mine. First of all, I make sure to fully close out of each app I'm not using. The built in task management in Android is a lot better than it used to be.. But its not much of a help on an older device like this.
If that doesn't do enough for you look around for a stripped down minimal version of CM and a minimal gapps package as well.
If you're willing to stay on top of it and deal with some lag time to time though... Then any of the KK ROMs will be good to run. But, if you want it to be smooth and not have any work arounds or issues you'll want to stick to a more stock ROM.
