I know that those programs have video options in there where you can lower the resolution and graphics quality. This should help make playing the game a little smoother for your system.
Also, when it comes to computers, Asus is not a very reputable company. I worked for a company where all they bought was Asus and I was replacing stuff in those computers at least once a week.
Hope this helps :)
