Pc has good spec but games wont run smooth

I've just gone to system requirements to see if my pc will run ''Mafia II'' and it passed all the tests however when I try to play it is far from smooth very juddery and difficult to control anything at all?
I'm running
OS:windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit
Processor: Intel Quad cpu Q6600 @ 2.40GHz.
RAM: 3.0GB
Video Card: Nvidia GeForce 9300 GS
Video RAM: 1.5GB
Hardware T&L : YES
Pixel Shader version: 4.0
Vertex Shader Version: 4.0
Sound card: pass
Free Disk Space: 722.5GB
I pass on all tests but it runs like a dog?
Can anyone please help me out here?

Regards, Matt

    that card is not meant for gaming, just for office and web stuff....

    read some reviews like this one http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Powercolor/HD_5750_Low_Profile/
    then choose one that fits your wallet, and go get it :D

    As others have said, that is your problem. You will need a graphics card upgrade.
  3. Agree with the other posters, you need a better card, even low end gaming card like HD5670 or GT240 is MUCH better than 9300GS. :)
