Connecting pc-pc

Here’s my predicament I have acquired a gaming pc excellent for processing but it’s a big base unit and I don’t want to have a separate monitor and ideally need to find somewhere to put pc out the way , now I can access gaming pc via Anydesk from laptop but I seem to lose a bit of clarity in resolution using Anydesk or any other remote programs I have used  which connects via internet, would connecting the two computers via Lan cable be better , gaming pc is win 10 pro , laptop win10 home  which can be upgraded to pro if needed could someone advise best route for optimum performance, I’d like to do all processing via Startools and stacking using the gaming pc using the laptop screen.

I use remote desktop to connect to all mine....   seems to work fine for me , don't know what other do, but you would need pro for this.

Mine are mostly connected via LAN cables, but it works on wifi too, but i prefer a stable wired connection

I use Team Viewer over LAN

I ahve two Win 10 PC's, and I use Windows remote desktop to monitor the laptop outside. Works just fine. It would be better with LAN though, then I could grab files and work on them on my inside PC.

Finally upgraded pc’s to pro version, couldn’t get Remote Desktop to work for the life of me luckily having a resident software engineer apprentice in the house spurred on with a cash incentive  , 45min later my lad had it working, initial thoughts is it works better than other remote applications and that’s over WiFi will try over a network cable to see  if there’s any difference .
