Is this a good pc build for fraps?

I was working on a pc build (http://pcpartpicker.com/user/DerpyDonutPC/saved/3tZY) and was wondering if I should go with this? My budget is about $650 and I want to record using fraps and be able to play games smoothly (I understand I cannot do this with high-end games) I was mainly planning on using this for minecraft. So any recommendations? What should I keep/change ect.

  2. used the newer i5 for s few bucks more and a h87 mb. fine for one video card and non over clocked system. as the h87 mb has two dimm slots and max ram of 16g used one 8g dimm right now. the 7790 is only slightly slower then a 7850.

    thank you for that build, I will be sure to look at it and give it a go!
  4. If you want the best performance with recording, I suggest you try Shadow Play(it is limited to 1920 x 1080 @ 60fps, no other options right now) for any Nvidia card GTX 650 ti and newer.

    Because the video card does the compression and the compression leads to much smaller files, it is a good way to get better recordings.

    The 7790 listed above DOES give a better gaming experience when not recording for sure and that hard drive is fast enough for fraps with no issues.
