All I want to know: will this system run smoothly? http://pcpartpicker.com/user/SpydexThePhantom/saved/#sa...

PCPartPicker will generally let you know if there are any incompatibilities. The system looks fine, but I wonder at your selection of hard drives. Why a 1TB and a 2TB? For less money, you could get a Seagate Barracuda 3TB drive and partition it any way you want. I'm just curious as to why the two standard hard drives.

This question has been asked a billion times, let me put it simply: I record with FRAPS. The more memory taken up in the HDD FRAPS stores it's videos to, to less FPS you get while recording. Don't ask why, it's just a wacky thing FRAPS does. I also didn't mean is it compatible, I meant will it run smoothly. EX: is the power supply enough? Is the cooling enough? Etc. Thanks for the help though.

FRAPS is a beast and there's no getting around it. If you can assign your game to cores 0-3 and FRAPS to cores 6 and 7, that should help alleviate any issues with CPU utilization. Your motherboard does accept DDR3-1866 RAM so you may want to step up from the DDR3-1600 your currently have.

When I said, "The system looks fine", I meant I didn't see any glaring issues. Nothing about your build raised any issues for me (your power supply is fine). However on a closer look, it seems your case only has a single front 120mm intake fan. I would definitely add a 120mm rear exhaust fan. I prefer Scythe.

Cool, thanks. How much would a rear 120mm fan be? Also how can I assign tasks to cores? That's pretty cool.

Assign a Program or Process to a Specific Core

Cooling fans shouldn't cost more than $10. This Rosewill 120mm Blue LED Case fan gets great reviews at under $10. Scythe doesn't seem to be offered at Newegg anymore.
