So the other day I wanted to start recording videos for youtube, so today I bought FRAPS, and started recording.  So I get on my game, runs smooth all the time, and start to record.  Right as I click "F9" to record , the game gets very laggy.  What internal hardware would I need to make the game run faster with FRAPS?  This is my computer.

In my experience, Hard drive writing speed was the main killer, especially if not using a different recording drive. Try using smaller screen size, or grab rate (in fraps settings)and see if it improves. That's what I had to do.

Yeah I agree with the statement above and I used to have alot of problems recording gameplay. The solution i found was the same solution as recording audio and that´s using multiple scratch drives to save the clog-up on the read/write on the HD.


I run all OS and Standard software from SSD

Run Games, VST´s, Plugins e.t.c on a 2TB Internal Drive

and then save audio/video & graphics to my 2nd 2tb HD.


The main issue your having is with HD speeds I would guess
