You can try software mode only and see what happens.
You'll need to restart Camtasia for the change to take effect.

From the Nvidia website. The 1050ti looks like a good strong card. https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/products/10series/geforce-gtx-1050/
The card is going to contribute to the playback of graphics.Especially animated graphics. The CPU deals with video.
What CPU are you running?

Well, that's a decent CPU. Yet a 4 core 4 thread set up. I was surprised to read that it is not a 8 thread processor. That's definitely a disadvantage in the video editing world. To what degree I really couldn't tell you.I'm no expert on the subject.
I'm curious how much RAM memory you have installed?
Your biggest bottleneck will be video dimensions. What resolution videos are you trying to edit?
The higher the resolution is. The more difficult it is to play the video back in real time. Unfortunately, as I mentioned earlier. Camtasia doesn't possess any tools or settings to reduce the load, on the CPU or the GPU, in any way shape or form.
This can create a problem for anybody's computer, regardless of how strong they are. Especially when dealing with 4K video and complex projects.
The media used matters.Where did it come from,codecs, etc.
There are number of minor things that can contribute to playback issues. Like hardware drivers out of date and things of this nature.You could open a ticket with tech support and let them look over your installed drivers and things of that nature. See what they have to say about your issue.

I'm curious how much RAM memory you have installed? = i have 16gb ram 
What resolution videos are you trying to edit? = 720 or 1080
Where did it come from,codecs, etc. = mp4
only the cpu is kinda bad but everything else is good and more then that
so after i told everything u wanna know what i need to do?

I would let tech support take a peak.Make sure everything is in order and go from there.

You can help track down your bottlenecks. A second monitor is highly recommended, or even essential. Referring to the pic below, launch 3 instances of Resource Monitor ("A"):  use one to monitor [CPU], one to monitor [Memory], the third for [Disk(s)]. Each Resource Monitor tracks 60 seconds of activity in 1-second increments
Unfortunately you can only open one instance of the Task Manager, but you can toggle the tabs ("B") [Processes] / [Performance].  In total they use very little memory or CPU time and won't affect Camtasia's performance.

From top to bottom, left to right: Your CPU will have 5 or 6 graphic panels, the top one is most important and tracks total CPU usage - if it ever maxes out, your computer will seem to be running at a snails pace, but no harm.  using your boot drive to cache data meant to be in RAM.
Memory panels: If you max out on "Used Physical Memory" a file on your boot drive "pagefile.sys" will cache data meant to be in RAM, and your computer may pretend to die (get very slow).
Disk panels: You'll have one panel for each drive you have, and the top panel measures all disk activity.
Task Manager: [Processes] tab lists all apps executing and the resources they consume.  Background processes are listed below what I show, but can be extremely important. Anti-virus S/W can at times swallow all available resources - a good reason to find another A/V program. 
Task Manager: [Performance] tab - summarizes the resource monitors and also provides  GPU performance; click on the GPU Box, lower-left, to expand its info block. Most important - monitor GPU memory usage, if you run out of GPU-Ram, it'll use CPU Ram set aside for it at boot up time.
