Problem with fraps

Hello community, I have a big problem when recording with fraps...

The thing is that I have an ultrabook (asus ux31a) with 4 GB RAM (non upgradable), i5 CPU and a mSATA. When I play games like League of Legends, the game runs perfectly with 40 fps. But when I try to record the game with fraps (locked at 30 fps), the game actually runs with 20 fps (while recording) so I can't make a proper record.
I checked the CPU and RAM usage during recording and I saw that both where at approximately 50% of their capacity.

I heard that it is recommended to save the recording in an other drive because the boot drive pains working on windows system and at the same time writing the video record.

What do you think I should do to record correctly?

If I buy a drive, I can only connect it to my laptop with USB 3.0 but I don't know if it will make any difference. And if I get an SSD? Will it change something? And the USB 3.0 max speed is 30 MB/s...

I tried using LOL replay (a program that allows you to see the match you played, with the internet). Then the procedure is to record your screen but I have the same problem.

Fraps really lower your fps while recording,Recording with FRAPS locks your fps to 24/30/60/whatever only while recording. The fps counter has little effect on fps while not recording and yes recording in a seperated hard drive/external hard drive will help you a lot.

But will I still get lag with a USB drive ? USB is slow compared to SATA.... And if I get the SSD, anyone knows?

Trying the USB drive won't hurt,so test it first before getting a SSD.
