First you might want to check the positions of your anchor points. Is this line really horizontal? No handles where they shouldn't be?

 

Then try if View > Preview on CPU makes this better.

What about Preview on CPU?

 

Are you really sure about the positions? Did you check that?

The GPU (the processor on the graphic card) is very powerful, very fast and is therefore used for a lot of calculations. Including rendering artwork on screen. Unfortunately it is not only fast, but also somewhat sloppy and imprecise. It's OK for games, but just not for precise vector artwork.

 

You can certainly work with GPU preview, and only use the CPU preview when you need to check something.
