graphics card causing 'judder' during golf game?

I have a basic PB Imedia pc, about 2 years old, I can't remember what it's called but the graphics card is pretty poor, fine for every day computing and i am not a gamer but, i found one game World Golf Tour which is great but it has a meter that you have to mouse click when it hits the centre to play straight shots etc, when i click my mouse there is such a delay before it reaches the meter i miss by a massive amount, i know part of this is learning to time the click but it's a very long delay between click and action also when the line is moving along the meter it judders badly so i'm never sure exactly where the line is, i tried reducing screen resolution which helped a teeny tiny bit I changed the nvidia settings from looks to performance again it barely made a difference and both changes make everything else look crap, this is a midi tower and from what i understand that would really restrict my options for getting another graphics card, is there anything i haven''t done that i could try i played it about a year ago and it still had a fair bit of delay but it's much worse now, in the end is it just that my graphics card is poor? I know it was only 2nd from the bottom of the cards that were released at the time

Two factors will combine to produce these problems:-

  1. A graphics card that just can't handle the data stream.

  2. Insufficient RAM

One of the universal truths in computing is that the single most effective upgrade is always more RAM, all other things being equal.

FE as answered one reason, But if its off-line that you are playing games the CPU or Graphics is not up to the job of running the game.

You could try Right Click Desktop/Properties/Settings/Advanced/Troubleshoot drop the Graphics Acceleration slider one notch at a time and try the Game
