I've got all the ports open that Apex is using.
So that we're not just answering one question at a time anymore...
I am running the latest version of Windows, version 2004, with the latest Windows updates.
I am using the latest NVIDIA graphics driver, version 446.14.
All of my other drivers are up to date.
I have tried closing essentially all programs that are not Origin/Apex and have not seen any improvements.
I am also attaching my dxdiag.txt
