  10. Background Processes: Close background applications and processes to free up system resources while gaming.

  11. Antivirus: Use a lightweight antivirus program or set it to gaming mode to minimize its impact on system performance.

  12. Network: Ensure a stable internet connection with low latency for online gaming.

  13. BIOS Update: Check for BIOS updates on the ASUS website to optimize system stability.
