  1. What are you recording with? What settings are you using?

    I would recommend using a separate computer to record to. It would require a total beast of a processor and hard drive to record to the same computer you are playing on. If you must record using the same computer, try dropping to 30 FPS for the recording and using lowered video quality and lowered resolution.
  3. You are saying while recording game slows down? If yes try to lower down setting and reslution and see recording weather it works or not if not then please mention what recorder you are using (hardware or software) or I would recommend fraps to record but in case its video sizes are too big! In my opinion I think you need no upgrade if you still have problems then use another computer to record games but I need some details about you computer before I can tell the exact problem about why it slows down when recording, about what games you are recording and which software you are using. Please reply me with some details about you computer
